Due to the April 12-14 holiday break, Hunter Library is celebrating National Library Week with a new activity every day April 17-21. Events planned include a library-wide egg hunt on Monday, a bookmark making station on Tuesday, a drop-in coloring session on Wednesday, our annual edible books contest on Thursday, and an opportunity to tell us why you love the library on Friday.
First observed in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association to promote the use of all types of libraries, public, school and university. A nonprofit citizens group called the National Book Committee organized the first observance, hoping to encourage Americans to read more books.
The library’s much anticipated edible book contest beings at 10am, Thursday, April 20th. Participants are asked to drop their entries off in the library lobby at this time. The library visitors will be able to vote for their favorite creations from 10am to 2pm in-person, as well as via Facebook and Instagram. Winners will be announced at 2:15pm and prizes distributed. Winner of the Best Overall category will receive a gift card to the WCU Bookstore.
