May Book Display

National Military Appreciation Month

Both chambers of the U.S. Congress have adopted a resolution calling for Americans to recognize and honor U.S. service members during May’s National Military Appreciation Month.

So with that in mind, the Todd Library is honoring them through our book display and memorabilia. Come join us in a salute to all who have served and defended our great land from before we became a nation to present.

Remember too, on Memorial Day, the one minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time to honor the military’s fallen comrades and to pay tribute to the sacrifices by our nation’s service members and veterans.

Web site of the Week: OWL

It’s that time of the semester again when students are frantically trying to finish up research papers.  If you still need research help please stop by the library.  If you are working on putting your paper together or formatting your works cited page I would suggest looking at Purdue’s Online Writing Lab also known as OWL.  It has up to date MLA and APA citation style guides that show you exactly how to cite your research.  If you are graduating and looking for a job the OWL also has a nice section on job search writing and resumes.

Choose Privacy Week

Choose Privacy Week (May 2-8) is a new initiative by the American Library Association that invites library users into a national conversation about privacy rights in a digital age. Their vision statement declares “In the spirit of civic values that allow people to freely seek information in all formats without fear of retribution or exploitation, it’s time to reclaim our right to privacy.” Check out their website for more information and what you can do to protect your digital privacy at
