Doing More with Less in 21st Century Libraries

… why are we still saying this?!!! It isn’t true and it isn’t possible. Its delusional and, worse, its harmful! Harmful not just to one organization; but to libraries everywhere. Libraries around the world fight every day for increased budget. … Continue reading →

The Great War: A Centennial Remembrance

Harold B. Lee Library News - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 2:45pm

2014 marks the hundredth year since the outbreak of World War I. Special Collections curator Kristi Young and BYU professor Robert Freeman collaborated to put together a stunning exhibition commemorating the anniversary.

The exhibit, located in Special Collections on the first floor of the library, features journals, weapons, uniforms, photographs, posters, and a stereoscope with slides from university collections.

The small travel diary of a typist stationed in Paris tell of sightseeing, hotels, and uncomfortable train rides, while a headphone station nearby allows you to listen to a veteran telling stories from his service.

Track star and BYU hall of famer Clinton Larson served in World War I in a special squadron tasked with maintaining troop morale. He competed for the US in the Inter-Allied Games in France in 1919, winning a gold medal in the high jump. The exhibit contains several items of Larson’s clothing, and information about his service during the war.

Take time to explore, contemplate, and imagine life during this dramatic period of modern history.

The exhibit will be on display until Spring 2015.

Family LEGO night

Family LEGO Night
We held our second family LEGO night yesterday and it was a great time. We played a LEGO challenge game, LEGO bingo, had a bridge building challenge and time for free building. We displayed all the creations from the free build in our children's department and they look amazing, very creative!

Our bridge building challenge was a great success, with 3 teams building bridges that could hold 10 encyclopedias! The pictures below show the teams during the construction of these awesome structures. I unfortunately didn't get any photos during the bridge testing phase, since I was busy stacking encyclopedias up and getting them to balance too! If anyone got pixs, I would love it if you shared. :)

 Many thanks to all the families that attended!

Authors now join Public Libraries as targets of Publisher and Bookseller censorship and greed – But who is the real victim?

21st Century Library Blog - Mon, 08/11/2014 - 9:05pm
It appears that it is not just Libraries any longer that are at the whim of publishers and booksellers. Authors now find themselves pawns in the game of market share and bottom-line. And some are NOT taking it lying down. … Continue reading →

Staff Reading Pick

Book: Archetype : a novel by M. D. Waters

Recommended by: Melanie

Set in a futuristic dystopian world, a woman awakens with no memory of her life before--only a voice in her head telling her things are not as they seem. Is her husband her worst enemy or best friend? She has terrible nightmares about a different world where she is trapped. The dreams intensify and become daytime flashes of memory. A suspenseful story that kept me guessing right up to the end! It finishes with a cliffhanger, but don't worry there is a sequel, Prototype.
