National Library Week: Calendar of events

March 19, 2013

This year, Library Services will be working with other Rowan University departments and partners to demonstrate this year's theme:  "communities matter @ your library." We have put together the following week of events. Mark your calendars and join us!

Monday, April 15
Survey Day
Time: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.

This year’s Library Week theme is “communities matter.” We agree. The communities we serve DO matter, and we realize that we serve many kinds of learners and researchers. Please take a few moments to help us discover ways we can be more connected to you and to the rest of the Rowan University community. For your participation, you’ll be entered to win one of five Leed’s™ professional notepad sets.
