Watzek Library is joining libraries across the country in recognition of the 50th Anniversary of National Library Week, April 13-19. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. Celebrate today by visiting your library - in person or online. Join the circle of knowledge @ your library!

You can watch some of the latest additions to the Library's video collection without coming to the library, or checking them out. Watzek Library has subscribed to 19 videos from FMG on Demand. These are educational titles such as: "You only live twice; virtual reality meets real world in Second Life", "Freakonomics with Levitt and Dubner", and "Battle of the Brains; the case for multiple intelligences". (Note that viewing a video in the full screen mode doesn't work on Macs - yet).
In honor of Watzek Library's 40th anniversary, architectural historian Dr. Libby Dawson Farr will present on Paul Thiry, the architect who designed Watzek Library and Agnes Flanagan Chapel. The lecture will be held Sunday, February 24 at 2 p.m. in Council Chamber. The presentation is titled "The Art Within the Architecture: Paul Thiry and the Respectful Integration of the Pacific Northwest's Cultural and Natural Environment at Lewis & Clark College and Beyond". A reception will follow. Dr. Farr teaches at Marylhurst University and Pacific Northwest College of Art and earned her Ph.D. at the University of Oregon.
