Kindle Fire up for Grabs in National Library Week at SUU

Published: April 16, 2013 | Category: Special Events

The Gerald R. Sherratt Library will be thanking all of its patrons, as will libraries across the U.S., in honor of National Library Week, which runs April 15–19. At SUU, National Library Week opens the door for the Sherratt Library's inaugural LibraryLympics, open to all and promising great prizes for participation.

The weeklong event will feature four games, each testing SUU students' and employees’ knowledge of the library. Participants can win points each day, and the player with the most points at the end of the week will win a Kindle Fire; two runners-up will each be given a Kindle Reader. Beyond those lucky few, all participants will receive SUU memorabilia.

The LibraryLympics consists of several events:

  • Do You Know Your Library: Each day during the week a daily trivia question will be posted to the Library website testing your knowledge of the Library and the University. Submit your answer by the end of each day to receive points.
  • Scavenger Hunt: Search for a myriad of items in the library throughout the week, ranging from a line in a book to a title of a movie. A complete list of scavenger hunt items can be found at any of the service desks in the Library. Completed checklists should then be turned in to any Library employee no later than Friday, April 19.
  • Get To Know Your Librarian: Get the signatures of all 10 Sherratt Library librarians. One point is awarded per signature.
  • Name that Database: a new question about how to find specific Library materials will be featured each day on the Library’s website. Each simple question offers big points.

There is no need whisper; join the Sherratt Library in grand celebration of a national library system that continues to be monumental in the ongoing education and enrichment of its citizens.
