National Library Week

3 classic race cars with the words "Ready...Set...Library"

Get your racing outfit on as we celebrate a beloved part of our law school this week, the library. Each year, the American Library Association (ALA) announces a week in the spring to celebrate libraries across the nation. This year’s celebration begins April 7th and lasts through April 13th. The theme is Ready, Set, Library! Inspired by this, the law library staff has crafted their own Formula One racing theme to commemorate the week. 

At the circulation desk you’ll find sweet and salty treats for your enjoyment along with some stunning bookmarks that display notable Formula One racetracks. These tracks are some of our favorites, and you will notice throughout the week they match the tracks highlighted on our National Library Week LawGuide. Starting Monday, in addition to the informative ‘Paddock’ page, you will see ‘Race’ pages. Numbered 1-5, one race will be added each day. Be sure to read the whole page to learn more about important library resources, that day’s featured staff member(s), and our day-to-day library policies. Answer the quiz at the end to be entered for a prize! You won’t want to miss this chance to win a framed vintage Formula One poster, a car safety tool, and racing book. 

Speaking of missing out on really cool things, make sure to mark your calendars for a lunch with Steve from Lexis on Monday, April 8th in the Bayview room! This event provides an opportunity to learn more about Lexis AI. Knowledge is fuel, and Steve’s is the best on the market. 

Our law library would not be the study sanctuary it is without our student workers and staff. Whether you’re making a pit stop for snacks and bookmarks or attending the Lexis lunch, please thank your library workers!
