National Library Week is a time to celebrate our nation's libraries and library workers. This year's national theme is "There's More to the Story," celebrating all the materials, services, spaces, and things that libraries offer in addition to books. Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from textbooks and novels to research materials and e-books. But there's so much more to the story of libraries.
Come and see for yourself! The Michael Schwartz Library encourages all CSU community members to visit the library during National Library Week, April 23-29, to explore all we have to offer. Did you know we have phone charging cables, white board markers, educational toys, virtual reality headsets and video equipment to check out?
We're adding more and more non-book items to our collection to help you learn, work, teach, create, and succeed. As our collection of "things" continues to grow, you’ll find interesting new tools and materials to help with your coursework and to make your life easier
