To celebrate Banned Books Week, the Rod Library and UNI’s Gamer’s Brigade will be hosting a Cards Against Humanity tournament!
Banned Books Week (September 21-27, 2014) is about the freedom to read, and to be free to read, authors must be free to speak.
Libraries play a central role in defending the right to free speech by fighting to keep challenged books in their collections and accessible to the public.
So we figured what better way to demonstrate the Rod’s commitment to free speech than by hosting a tournament of the game dedicated to offensive speech?
More info to follow!
This week we’re spotlighting Michael Eades, a student and general superstar in our Reference and Instructional Services department!
Michael is a senior biology major and he expects to graduate in May 2015 (too soon!).
Michael says his hobbies are playing video games, “frolfing” (frisbee golfing), and napping in comfy places.
And Michael’s best library tip?
"There are tons of places hidden throughout the library that you can settle down and take a nap."
*important note: the Rod does not have a Totoro you can nap on (unfortunately).
Rainy day got you down? Remember the West Entrance (by the Campanile) of #rodlibrary is now open! So come on in and dry off, or just take break from the rain as you walk across campus!
It was a lot of fun!
There were lots of games…
And even chances to smash whipped cream in your friend’s face…
UNI’s Gamer Brigade ran the game room…
And there were FREE food samples from the Book Bistro (opening Sept. 15th y’all)
There was even a chance for some exercise playing Human Hungry Hungry Hippos…
But, perhaps most importantly, there was this video of the Dean of the Library, Mr. Chris Cox:
See you next year!
#cheesehead run-through for #bashinthestacks tonight! Make sure you’re on time for your #datewithrod tonight, 7-9:30!
