The South University library kicked off its National Library Week celebrations with free bookmarks with the NLW 2010 theme Communities Thrive @ your library to all students who stopped by the library.
Eager students wait the drawings
On the second day of activities students picked up quiz cards in the library for the Ring-Around-the -Databases competition. The four-question quiz was designed with SU Information Directive in mind and required participants to use various libary databases which included newspaper, literature, general and eBooks to find the answers. All correct entries were entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card.
