The theme is interpretive to the title, “Diversity Means…”. Artists are encouraged to submit a personal narrative about their artwork.

Stress Busting For Finals 2015

Finals week creeps up on us once again.  Don’t worry, the Rod is here to make the journey slightly less painful.  We have a few stress relieving activities planned.  Dec 14-16 from 5pm-8pm there will be free chair massages in the Learning Commons.  The graffiti wall and stress free zones will make a reappearance, and back by popular demand- P.E.T.P.A.L.S therapy dogs will be in the lobby to greet you and let you know how amazing you are.   They’ll be here Dec 9,10, 14-16 from 11am-2pm.

The Microsoft Surface Hub at Rod Library

Rod Library is actively fundraising to purchase a Microsoft Surface Hub, as a key component of the new Learning Commons collaborative workspace.    

Why the Microsoft Surface Hub?

The 55” Microsoft Surface Hub represents a new era in collaboration at Rod Library.   While we have a number of conferencing and collaboration tools (like webcams and shared screens) at Rod Library today, they exist separately and take a bit of know-how and prep time to sync up and activate.

Banned Book Week

We celebrate Banned Books Week each year to bring attention to books that have been challenged, restricted, or banned, and to highlight the importance of even the most controversial texts. Many of the books you'll see featured this week haven't actually been banned. They've been challenged or otherwise targeted for removal, but they've remained on shelves in the long run after communities followed their own challenge policies and allowed for advocacy and discussion.
