WBC Celebrating National Library Week


Felix Goodson Library at Williams Baptist College will join in the celebration of National Library Week April 8-14. Two events at the library will coincide with the observance.

Library Workers Appreciation Day will be held at Goodson Library on Tuesday, April 10, with everyone on campus and in the community invited to attend, according to WBC Library Services Director Pam Meridith. Refreshments will be available all day, and the library is open from 8 a.m. to 12 midnight that day.

The Annual Used Books Sale will be held April 9-22 in the library’s lobby. Books of wide interest will be priced individually as low as five cents each. Sets of books such as encyclopedias and large atlases are available, and collectors will find many bound periodicals such as "Good Housekeeping" and "Better Homes and Gardens" dating back to 1966. The sale is open to the public.

Meridith noted that in the past year, Felix Goodson Library has been involved in a wide array of activities beyond the walls of the library. These include a special Biblical dramatization from the book of Hosea by Gary Brown of North Main Baptist Church in Jonesboro. The library also maintained booths at the local health fair, Eco Fair, 5K walk/run, and the Lawrence County Fair.

Future workshops are in planning for FLIP video cameras, Google Docs, the new KOHA automated library catalog, and Nook e-readers.

Individuals from local communities are welcomed to use the library facility and resources, according to Meridith. Applications for Community Patron Cards are available at the library, and the FGL website (www.williamsbaptistcollege.com/library) allows anyone with Internet to access services and resource information.
