We’re wrapping up our National Library Week celebration with a Flashback Friday slideshow of our time spent in the UCBA Library, both old, temporary and new spaces, over the last several years. We can’t wait to reconnect in person again.
National Library Week, April 8 – 12th, is underway and we’d love for you to join us! Take part in any or all of the fun activities scheduled this week!

You chip in, and we’ll chip in! Donate personal care items for the 100,000 individuals in need served by St. Vincent de Paul. If you fill the blue bin in the library with donations, we’ll fill it with bags of delicious chips the following week as a thank you!
