Del Mar College marks National Library week

Walking into the White Library lobby, students were greeted with smiles and cake for the kick-off of National Library Week. 

“It’s a celebration of what libraries contribute to our society,” said Cody Gregg, dean of learning resources. “Not only what we do in terms of student success at an academic library, but public libraries and how they contribute to the community.” 

National Library Week, celebrated April 7-13, was founded in 1958 to promote libraries in education and the community. 

“The purpose is to market and use of the library, not only for the students, but the community as well,” said Resource Librarian Jennifer Jimenez. 

Events such as Game Day, Author Readings and Video Game Night were held on East and West campuses throughout the week. Students were encouraged to participate in activities for fun, but to also learn about the resources available.
