National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. However, this year is different.
The original theme for National Library Week, “Find your place at the library,” was chosen months ago before the emergence of a global pandemic forced most libraries to temporarily close their buildings. Because of the global pandemic, the theme for this year's celebration was given a new alternative text: "Find the library at your place."
The Kolwyck Library is live online at library.chattanoogastate.edu through chat, email, phone, library instruction, and one-on-one online reference help. Even though the building is closed, our library staff still brings people together to solve student technology issues, or to help students find those resources for their Big Fish papers, or for our new paralegal students to explore the world of electronic legal research, or the many other students helped with their academic success.
We celebrate our KLIC staff. We celebrate our libraries in this area and their staffs. We celebrate the value of libraries in the global community. Because libraries are always here for you.
