National Library Week 2015

Celebrate National Library Week by Thomas Weeks

Reese Library is celebrating NLW through a series of videos of GRU faculty and students speaking to the importance of the Library in meeting their educational needs. Watch the videos above or view them on the Reese Library website.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week (NLW) is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country. Each April, NLW highlights the important role libraries, librarians, and other library workers play as change agents within their communities, transforming lives through innovative educational resources and forward-thinking programming, as well as providing an environment that grows and fosters the skills necessary to be successful information seekers and users in the 21st century. Libraries are doing their part to close the digital divide and level the playing field by providing free access to information and technologies that many in their communities would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.  Libraries help to ensure the American dream and promote democracy by providing service to all. This year NLW will be celebrated April 12-18.

The University Libraries serve Georgia Regents University and the surrounding community by providing high quality resources and services to meet educational and clinical needs of students, faculty, staff and the community. Whether it’s just the right journal article, a research consultation with an expert librarian, or a relevant book found in the catalog, the Libraries strive to meet the needs of GRU’s community of scholars.
