Each April since 1958, libraries across the country, including the DePaul University Library, celebrate National Library Week. The week is intended both to promote the use of library services and resources and to recognize the contributions that librarians, library staff, and libraries make to our communities. Sponsored by the American Library Association, the theme for National Library Week 2019 (April 7 – 13) is “Libraries = Strong Communities.”
At DePaul University, the Library is the hub of our academic community. It is where you meet with friends and classmates to study and collaborate on projects. It is also where librarians and library staff work to provide you with services, resources, and spaces to help you succeed academically, professionally, and personally. So, with a nod to Easter, which is also in April, we’re celebrating National Library Week at the DePaul University Library with the theme, “The Library: where your peeps are!”
Keeping with the theme, we’ll be hosting a Peeps Party Tuesday April 9th, 2:00–4:00pm. Stop by the John T. Richardson and Loop Libraries for free Peeps marshmallow treats.
Then, enter our Shelfie Challenge. Take a selfie with your peeps (real or marshmallow) doing what you do in the library for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. Post your selfie to Instagram or Twitter and tag it with #DPULibraryPeeps by April 13th.
We hope to see you and your peeps at the Library during National Library Week! Thank you for making the Library the buzzing hub of our DPU community!
