Thank you to all who generously donated new and gently used coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and even blankets to support our UCBA Cares – Spread the Warmth Drive 2017. We collected over 148 items and donated them this week to the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition. Our donations will help make this winter and the holiday season a lot warmer for so many who are truly in need!
The Spread the Warmth Drive was sponsored and coordinated by the UCBA Library and Student Nursing Association.
As part of its community outreach, UCBA welcomed 5th and 6th grade students from Rockdale Academy to campus today for the UC Smiles program. The UCBA Library participates in this program by teaching library workshops to students during their day on campus. These workshops give students the opportunity to learn about a college library and tour the space.
This commemorative month aims to provide a platform for Native Americans in the United States of America to share their culture, traditions, music, crafts, dance, and ways and concepts of life. This gives Native people the opportunity to express to their community, both city, county and state officials their concerns and solutions for building bridges of understanding and friendship in their local area. Your UCBA library is sharing a selection of our titles relating to many aspects of Native American life. The display will be available until December 8th and can also be browsed online on the Library Displays at UCBA guide. Special thanks to our student employee, Haiden Reno, for putting the display together.
