ALA National LIbrary Week

 Celebrate National Library Week  April 10 - 16, 2016

 The American Library Association has designated April 10 - 16, 2016  as National Library Week. 

 Libraries nationwide are working harder than ever to serve the needs of people in their communities. At BCTC libraries and learning commons, students can stop by to get help with finding research sources related to classroom assignments, which can help bolster student success. Assistance with integrating information literacy methods into the classroom is available via consultation, online guides and classroom instruction sessions. The libraries and learning commons also offer space for people to gather together to study or read, and the opportunity to check out a variety of books and movies. You can also find free internet access to a wide range of academic resources, including books and databases.  If you have a moment, stop by a library this week, to see what libraries can do for you!
