Below is a guest post from Abby Army the library marketing assistant here in the library!
By day, Gingrich Library is a (mostly) quiet space, filled with students studying and working to further their education. However, last week, the library took a step on the wild side with two fun and innovative programs.
On November 1, we held an event that is a staple of this fall season, the Dia de los Muertos study break. This event allows students to take a break and relax while returning to their childhood and coloring. Hot chocolate and other refreshments are also provided (who knew Dulce de Leche wafer cookies were so mind-blowingly good?!). The coloring is not only a fun way to relax, but also a neat way to possibly earn prizes. We had two winners of our yearly Calavera contest; Paris Walker and Lauryn Gwathmey! Congratulations!
On November 3, we held our first ever Game Night, a night full of fun, laughter, and bonding. Students could choose to test their patience Jenga, test their flexibility with Twister, test their luck with Candy Land, test their guessing skills with Clue, or test their mind with Scrabble (en Espanol, of course). However, the surprise hit game of the night was a game called Quelf, a game meant to test your creativity, and your sense of humor.
Both of these events were well-received, and both will most likely happen again! Be sure to come to Gingrich Library before the holidays and check out a book to curl up with, it’s getting cold out there, and we all need a little time to relax and enjoy a good story (or twelve!).
