The Gleeson Library participated in University Health Promotion Services‘ Stress Less Day on April 4th. Some people played Jenga or got a manicure other folks just relaxed and pet the dogs brought in from the SPCA.
Gleeson Library is co-sponsoring two different free film events on campus in the next few days. On Monday, April 8, join us in the Rare Book Room at 6 p.m. for a delightful look at some very young Muslim scholars in Koran By Heart. And screening at Presentation Hall this Thursday through Saturday is USF’s 11th Annual Human Rights Film Festival, opening with a selection of shorts produced by USF students. Issues highlighted in the festival range from free speech to drug trafficking. We share with the festival organizers a belief in the power of film to educate and encourage citizens to take action, and are pleased that several of the festival films this year are new library holdings.
The Gleeson Library joined the Bike Repair Day in the Gleeson Plaza with a Bicycle Bookmobile. The Bike Repair Day is hosted by ASUSF Sustainability Committee. the first Tuesday of each month in the regular semester.
