Posted in Faculty, Staff, Students by Diane Fulkerson | No Comments »

Pic-04162013-003May 7th is the National Teacher Day so the Library thought of honoring our teachers, our student teachers and all their colleagues in this new display.

Don’t forget to give a teacher some love on May 7th. The National Education Association suggests to update your social media to thank a teacher, for example, by changing your Facebook status to thank a teacher who made a difference in your life. Or, by sending appreciation messages on Twitter and using the #thankateacher hashtag.

The majority of the books on display can be checked out.
