Libraries Transform – We Are Difference Makers

Written by Rochelle Krueger, Curriculum Librarian

Every day Calvin T. Ryan Library strives to provide the resources and services that students, faculty, and researchers need to excel. This week (April 10-16, 2016) marks National Library Week. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.

“Today’s libraries are not just about what we have for people, but what we do for and with people,” according to Sari Feldman, President of ALA. “The goal of the Libraries Transform campaign is to change the perception that ‘libraries are just quiet places to do research, find a book, and read’ to a shared understanding of libraries as dynamic centers for learning in the digital age. Libraries of all kinds foster individual opportunity that ultimately drives the success of our communities.”
