Prank you very much, seniors!

Perhaps you heard - actually, you definitely did, because the Quiet Room was anything but quiet on Tuesday.  Why?  The intrepid Class of 2013 covered the entire floor in bubble wrap!  Here are a few pictures from the day:

The aftermath.

2013 Book Swap and Bake Sale

The 2013 Book Swap and Bake Sale is open for business!
Maybe you followed the map, maybe you heard the news, maybe you just stumbled across it while stumbling to grab some lunch, but this week the Student Library Advisory Board and librarians took over part of the Commons during lunch to open a pop up book store and bakery for the 3rd Annual Book Swap and Bake Sale!

Thanks to the generous donations of used books and baked good, the BBN US community has rallied to raise more than $100 for More than Words this year - and we'll be able to donate more that 200 unclaimed books for their stock!  High fives all around, BBN.  Huge thank you to all the parents and students who baked for us, everyone who brought in books, and to the students who helped to organize, set up, and run the swap and bake sale!

Blind date with a book

Are you feeling a little daring in anticipation of Spring Break? Do you long for an epic combination of adventure, fun, romance, danger, tears, laughter, and magic? Do you yearn to find greater connection in this ever solitary world (yes, you, reading this on your smart phone).  Good thing you know some matchmaking librarians.  

Confucius loves blind dates with books. 
Courageous, romantic souls of the BBN community, we'd like to set you up on a blind date...with a book.
