2009 National Library Week, April 12 through 18

WORLDS CONNECT @ YOUR LIBRARY is the theme for the 2009 National Library Week, April 12 through 18. National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation's libraries and library staff. All types of libraries -- school, public, academic, and special -- participate.

Please come to the Ort Library to help us celebrate! Come see the display highlighting WORLDS CONNECT @ YOUR LIBRARY located on floor 4. The display highlights world cultures and the education partners of Frostburg State University throughout the world.

The display includes a short history of marbles and how they are used worldwide. You are invited to guess the number of marbles in the jar at the Circulation/Main Desk of the Ort Library on floor 3. The student who guesses the number closest to the number of marbles will receive a 4 gigabyte thumb drive. Any student who checks out a book during National Library Week will receive a small gift.

April is National Poetry Month!

April is National Poetry Month! The display on the main floor, of the Lewis J. Ort Library features a selection of poets and poems, ranging from the contemporary to the traditional. Poetry by Barbara Hurd and Gerry LaFemina, Frostburg State University professors, are included in the display.

Come view the display and start on the road to poetry reading!
