National Library Week next week!

Whether you are a student researching a class assignment, a job seeker looking for resources to land a new job, or a local community member coming to share Delgado’s resources, you belong @ your library.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available, and accessible to all people.  Libraries help students and faculty thrive in these tough economic times by providing resources tailored to meet their needs. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong. 

The Delgado Community College Libraries are celebrating National Library Week with FINE FREE WEEK! Bring back your overdue library books during this week and your fines will be forgiven. In addition, we are observing the week by offering programs for students, faculty, and staff such as: Trivia, Library Jeopardy, and Faculty Workshops!
Daily drawing at 4pm for Prizes.

City Park Library will be playing Jeopardy on Wednesday  April 11th at 10am and Thursday April 12th at 11am.

The DCC Reference Librarians will present a CCSS workshop from 9am-12pm on April 13th.

“Today's libraries provide a wide range of opportunities for people with diverse needs and interests,” says Denise Repman, Dean of Library Services.  “That means providing their communities with tailor made collections and services for people of diverse backgrounds, language abilities and technological skills.”
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
