On April 10th, local band Oranga Tanga performed for an enthusiastic crowd on the first floor. If you missed the show, catch the highlights over on YouTube.
Anthony and Lisa of The Love Hut joined us once again for a wonderful evening of drumming and dancing – catch the highlights below, and look for them again in the fall!
We celebrated Earth Day with SOSA and the Sea Turtle Preservation Society. FIT grad student Nikia Rice came to speak to us about Brevard’s turtle nests, and what we can do to protect them. In case you missed her talk, here are a few pointers:
- Leave no trace: when visiting our beaches, remove all your trash, and smooth over any holes or sand castles you’ve created.
- Don’t release balloons outside! Popped balloons and other plastic waste can be ingested by turtles.
- Remember: sea turtles dig the dark. During nest and hatching season, lights can disorient nesting mothers and hatchlings. Help our turtles and keep our beaches dark.
We celebrated National Poetry Month and National Library Week this month with our favorite poets and our library-made materials. It was wonderful to see so much creativity from our staff and students.
- You may have noticed a certain lack of paper; when you check out library materials, you will now be emailed a receipt instead of receiving a paper one.
You can make a difference at Evans Library (yes, you!) through a donation. Gifts are crucial to the Library’s continued advancement; they allow us to provide the high-quality research resources, facilities, services, and programming that our students and faculty need.
ArcGIS and Creo are available on the third floor. Check out the new terminals on the north side of the building (along the windows).
Evans Library is hosting its first ever summer camp in June! What We Know: Understanding Media and its Influence will teach students how to look beyond the face of media information, and how to understand the influence it has on our lives. The camp runs from June 15th through 19th, and is open for teens from ages 12 to 17.
