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.

Hispanic Heritage Month Kick-Off

On September 15th, from 4-7pm the Rod Library will be hosting a Hispanic Heritage Month Kickoff to celebrate all things Hispanic and Latino. We will feature performances by Salsa Cedar Falls, IDT Dance Company, and the campus Capoeira group. There will be free food as well, along with crafts and a piñata! At the end of the evening we'll be screening the first episode of Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, to kick off our year long series of programs celebrating  Latinos and Latino culture.
