The Rohrbach Library open house will take place on September 23, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During the open house, students must find answers to ten questions on an orientation form. Like last year’s open house, students will go to several help desks, offices and locations within the library to learn about their services. This year, the library has also included questions that will bring students to the library website and online resources.
Students will have until the end of the week of September 23 to turn in their forms to the library’s main desk. This gives students who could not previously participate due to class schedules or other commitments the opportunity to participate.
Students who turn in a valid completed form will have the opportunity to win prizes. So far, prizes include: gift cards donated by local businesses, library cups and candy, library bags and gift cards to the student book store. A complete list of prizes will be available online on the library website and social media accounts in the near future.
A student that would like to use this library event for credit or extra credit in a class or as a student organization requirement should write their name and course or organization on the top of their orientation form. Once all of the forms are compiled, the library will let the professor or organization know which students participated.
Besides the open house, two other events are happening in the library on September 23.
Sponsored by the Department of Academic Enrichment, Fast Pass to Learning will take place at the second floor atrium area from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Students can learn some quick study tips and receive prizes.
Sponsored by the ABA, the Library Science Fraternity on campus, the Scholastic Book Fair will be located near the coffee shop on the first floor. Profits from the sale support the Library Science Collection as well as ABA activities. This event runs all week.
