Celebrating National Library Week With Book Sale & More

National Library Week is April 8-13, which means it’s time for three of Sims Library’s favorite events of the year: the annual Book Sale, Readings at Sims, and Overdue Book Amnesty Days.

  • Book Sale is April 10-12 -- Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are books for nearly every interest. Thousands of books for sale include popular fiction, sci-fi, biography, literature, poetry, cookbooks, self-help, art and photography, education, history, political science, sociology, and religion. Hardcover books are $2. Paperbacks are $1-2. DVDs are $2. CDs are $1. All sales are cash only.

  • Readings at Sims Library is Tuesday, April 10, at 6:30 p.m., on the 3rd floor of Sims Library. Each year, Readings at Sims serves as an entertaining showcase for talented writers on campus and in our community who will read from their original works. The featured writers include Catie Dunlap, Fabian Edwards, Jaina Green, and Matthew Lee.

  • Overdue Book Amnesty Days are (April 9-12) Monday through Thursday. During this amnesty period, students can return overdue books without having to pay fines! Be aware that amnesty does not apply to all library fines and fees. It applies only to books from the circulating stacks and does not include any of the following: outstanding fines (such as unpaid overdue fines from books returned in the past), lost book replacement fees, damaged books, Reserve books, or equipment (laptops, audio recorders, etc.)

This year is the 60th anniversary of National Library Week and the theme is “Libraries Lead.”
