Exam Cram a Success!

Another successful Exam Cram “goes down in the books” (pun intended)!  Students mentioned how much they appreciated and enjoyed snacks and beverages, the Weaving Workshop led by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood,  three different Meditations led by Emily Nisley, drop-in tutoring with Academic Support & Tutoring Services, librarian help with “works cited” lists, and, especially, extended building hours (10 am – 10 pm) on Saturday and Sunday.

“Day of Infamy” Remembered

Pearl Harbor bombing

77 years ago this week, the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked the US naval base at Pearl Harbor on Oahu, Hawaii. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called December 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy,” and Congress declared war against Japan shortly after.

Although the attack defined the times their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents lived through, the average citizen knows little about Pearl Harbor . The Library has resources to fill the void, including:
