UST Library Week 2016: Welcome

This is a guide that highlights local UST events celebrating National Library Week


Since 1958, the American Library Association has chosen a week in April to celebration National Library Week.

It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate. 


This year's national theme is "Libraries Transform" UST Libraries will be celebrating from April 10-16th and have come up with a variety of programs and events throughout the week. We are excited to share it all with you; check out the schedule on this page or browse this site to learn more!

Calling all (board) gamers! Old school or new, you know the value of social gaming for building relationships and letting off steam.
In the spirit of lending and service that makes Library work possible, we ask only the following:

Bring a snack for you and a friend.  Chips and dip, cookies, a 2 liter of your favorite pop...or whatever your preferred gaming fuel.

Bring your favorite tabletop games to share.  Better too many than too few!



Ongoing Events

The UST Libraries 8th Annual Food Drive will begin during Library Week, April 11th, and will run until the end of the semester.
Since the Library’s first drive in 2009, the UST community has donated more than 3,700 pounds of food.
This year’s donation recipient will be Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul.
For library patrons who had overdue fines we will waive fines in exchange for canned food (1 can = $2 in fines).
Though we do encourage any and every one to donate to this program, regardless of overdue fines.
