We are family...Come Together @ your library®
National Library Week's theme this year is "Come Together @ your library®." This week libraries across the country celebrate the importance of libraries in our lives. We come together to experience the pleasure of reading as well as expanding our knowledge. Libraries are valuable resources for every individual regardless of age. race, or religion. We all learn from visiting our libraries.
However, it is with sadness during National Library Week, that we come together at our libraries to express our sadness in remembering the Virginia Tech community. We share in their sorrow...we are one family.
Kristen Thore, Megan Merryman, Demond Hawkins and Librarian Joy Galloni remember the Virginia Tech community. VT's flag was hung at the entrance to the RBC Library Annex.
Dr. Virginia Cherry, Library Director, reads a quote from David Mahoney.
"Trust your hopes, not your fears."
Come together and send a message to Virginia Tech. A condolence book donated by J.T. Morris and Son Funeral Home is available in the Center for Student Affairs.
Librarians are wearing VT charms with their nametags to remember and support the Virginia Tech community.
