Leddy Library Summer Reading Challenge

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on leisure reading, whether you’re reading beside the pool, at the park, or in the (air conditioned!) library. This year, make your summer reads really count by entering the Leddy Library’s Summer Reading Challenge!
For every book you read this summer, cast a ballot for a chance to win a special book-related prize. The more books you read, the greater your chance of winning!

Write Your Novel at Leddy this November!

Have you always wanted to write a novel? This November, you can write your book at the Leddy Library!

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that fosters community and support in creative endeavours. 

The challenge is this: write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days! So many people get bogged down worrying about grammar and writing poignant prose that they can’t finish a novel.  Write your first draft during NaNoWriMo, and the editing can wait until December!

Have you met your librarian?

Here at the Leddy Library, we’re gearing up for a large group of new students to flock to the library!  We have lots of resources—from research help to assistance with finding data and statistics. But did you know that every discipline has their very own librarian?

Our information services librarians liaise with different departments, and they can help you to succeed here at the University of Windsor. They can assist you in finding relevant, scholarly resources for your papers, figuring out how to navigate databases, evaluating resources, and much more! 

Free Button-Making is Back!

WHEN: Thursday, June 21 from 2-4 PM

WHERE: Leddy Library’s ground floor, just when you walk into the library. You can’t miss it!

WHY: Release all your stress and worry into a button and then wear it with pride. 

We will have magazines, coloured paper and markers for the creative types, and if you want to bring your own picture, you can do that too!  The diameter of a button printout is 2.56”.  Be sure to allow for the edge of the paper to curl under during the making of a button (the actual button ends up being 2.2”).

Fines to Food

The end of winter term is approaching and spring is just around the corner!
 
This year when you pay your library fines you’ll also be helping your fellow students in need! The campus food bank is in of need of healthy goods that meet the needs of our student population.  

As a result, the Leddy Library is donating 10% of the fines we receive to the campus food bank so that they can help meet the needs of students here at the University of Windsor.
