This week is National Library Week, and the AUM Library is celebrating by offering those with library fines the chance to help the hungry. Come pay off your overdue fees April 11-16 by donating non-perishable food items, which the Library will give to the Montgomery Food Bank. Bring only items that are canned or boxed and not dented, opened or expiring soon. Donations will apply only to overdue fees and not lost item replacement or processing fees.
And the best part – you don’t have to owe any fees to donate! For more information, visit the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Library Tower.
The Library would also like to invite everyone to “Spring into Reading” at its National Library Week open house on Tuesday at 1 p.m. with refreshments in the lobby on the first floor. While you are there, hop on up to the second floor and check out the Learning Center’s new location, room 225.
The Library is incredibly grateful for the support from Coach Crotz, AUM Athletics, Moe’s Southwest Grill and all of our fans!

This Wednesday we will have the last Moe’s Southwest Grill Day before the check presentation at the baseball game on April 23, 2011. We’re hoping that this can be our biggest day yet. Please take a few minutes to place this on your calendar and also to personally invite a friend or two to attend. All proceeds from this promotion go to assist the Friends of the Library Fund and Athletics.
