Library Newsletter for January
Happy New Year, New Decade, New Semester! We have heard that some are equating the year 2020 with that of perfect eyesight, as in having 2020 vision. One can use the analogy that we might see things with a clearer vision in this upcoming year.
What YOUR college library is visualizing this year is a new space in a new building shared with some very special support programs. With GO Bond capital projects funds YOU, the voters, approved in the November 2018 election, UNM-Taos will be building a new College Pathways to Careers Center. The RMKM Architecture firm has been chosen, and has been working very closely with YOUR college library staff to design this new space to address the feedback we have been getting from YOU, the library users. We will keep you apprised as we move through this exciting process of designing and building this new facility.
In the meantime, there’s some fun to be had. Mark your calendars for February 29, 2020 because you don’t want to miss the 16th annual Love YOUR Library event. Back by popular demand is Trivia Game Night. Who knew you could have so much fun using your critical thinking skills, your knowledge, and your personal experiences by playing trivia and an assortment of games?
Last year’s Love YOUR Library event was such a hit YOUR library is bringing back the same program but with an international flair…”Discover YOUR world through YOUR Library.” Look for the upcoming details and start getting your trivia team together so you don’t miss out on the fun this year. We invite you, your family, your co-workers, classmates, fellow faculty to form a team and show YOUR college librarians you have what it takes to bring home the trophy.
The Love YOUR Library event is primarily a friendraiser so this evening is about fun for all ages, and all types. If trivia questions are not your idea of excitement then you’ll just have to show up to see what other opportunities for fun are lined up for the evening.
YOUR college library strives to present literacy in a fun and engaging way whether it’s basic literacy, information literacy, cultural, literary, language, or financial literacy. Save the date, February 29, to see how fun literacy can be. This year Love YOUR Library will be held at the Klauer Campus in the Padre Martinez Student Success Center.
Again, welcome to the Spring semester. As classes get under way, please come to YOUR library to introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you!
