Hello, Reinhardt folks, did you enjoy your unexpected week off? I sure did! It's back to business as usual in snowy Waleska today. The library is warm, the computers are functioning, and our stacks of books are inviting, so come on in and take the chill off! I would advise you to watch your step, though, especially if you're attempting to navigate the rear entrance near the first floor study area. The last time I checked, that was still pretty icy. The front entrance looks to be a little safer (and check out those beautiful icicles on the crape myrtle just to the right)!
Congratulations are due for PHOEBE BUDD! Phoebe is the winner of this month's Year of Oceania essay contest. Her prize is an Oceania t-shirt and a 4-gig flash drive.
There are still several chances to win! To enter, all you have to do is read any book or watch any movie about the Oceania region (located near the service desk on the 2nd floor of the library) or attend any "Year Of" event. Then write a 2- or 3-paragraph summary of the movie, book, or event. Turn it in at the library to either Michael Martinez or Stephanie Olsen by the 28th of each month for your chance to win.
In case you're wondering, we do encourage "double-dipping." If you read a book or watch a movie about Oceania for one of your classes this year, we will accept the work you did for that class as an entry. There's no reason not to enter!
