Join the Professional Book Nerds 2020 Reading Challenge

 

 

https://company.overdrive.com/2020/01/13/join-the-professional-book-nerds-2020-reading-challenge/

 

 

The Professional Book Nerds 2020 Reading Challenge is a list of 12 different types of books that readers will need to read throughout the calendar year. Some of this year’s challenges include “A self-published book” and “A book written by an LGBTQ+ author.” Once completed, readers can fill out the form below and send it to the Professional Book Nerds either via email ( professionalbooknerds@overdrive.com ) or by sending a screenshot to them on Instagram or Twitter (@ProBookNerds) for a chance to win a free device from OverDrive. Readers cannot use the same book for more than one task.

 

The Professional Book Nerds 2020 Reading Challenge is designed to get readers out of their comfort zone and introduce them to books and authors they wouldn’t normally read. The nerds will be sharing recommendations for each task throughout the year, so be sure to subscribe to the podcast to stay up-to-date! You can also join the conversation by using the hashtag #PBNRead2020.

 

Don’t miss out on this fun way to find your next great reading adventures all throughout 2020. Feel free to print off the below image and share it with your fellow librarians, family, friends and any other reader in your life!

Library Lovers’ Day is celebrated on February 14th each year to honor libraries, librarians, book lovers, and lovers of libraries. On Library Lovers’ Day, we celebrate the enduring relationship between our community and the libraries. This also provides an opportunity to celebrate those who love and support libraries and to remind decision makers how loved and cherished libraries are by the entire community. Not everyone receives flowers on Valentine’s Day but everyone is welcome at their library.

David "Big Dave" Baker, Sr. 

 

1976-2017

 

Big Dave Baker

 

 

 

Mr. David "Big Dave" Baker, Sr., was a Dillard University employee in the Facilities department. Big Dave was a hard worker, a family man and a gentle giant. David and his team were responsible for ensuring that our campus equipment was moved and set up properly for all campus events. Whenever anyone called on "Big Dave", he was right there without hesitation to make sure everyone's space and event was set up properly. David will be truly missed and will always be stamped in the heart of Dillard University.

 

 

A memorial walk organized by the Dillard University Library and tree dedication organized by Dillard University Facilities, was held in David's honor on Monday, February 5, 2018, on Dillard University's campus (see pictures above).
