How (Not) to Wear a Mask — and Why

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

We really hate being the nostril police. We really wish we could leave you alone and let you study and visit.

But not wearing your mask properly means your mask doesn’t work. It means you could be spreading COVID to the people in the library. People who might be living with a little brother who has a heart condition, or whose clinical might be caring for people who have cancer, or who might themselves be at higher risk of dying or getting complications from COVID.

Your librarians care about you. We want to keep you safe, so we have to keep going around and asking you to mask up. Please don’t make us. Just, please, wear your mask properly, over your nose and mouth.

Thank you. Please stay safe. We want to see you here today and next semester, studying and learning safely.

Inclusive Reading Club (IRC): Reflections on Life in America

Ask yourself, what does being an American citizen mean to you? We ask you to not only reflect on this but to join us in reading short essays from those negotiating the American landscape and sharing their cross-cultural experiences. They include Jade Chang, author of The Wangs vs. the World; Joy Cho, founder of Oh Joy! products; Geena Rocero, Filipino American supermodel, TED speaker, and transgender advocate; and Bambadjan Bamba, award-winning actor, filmmaker, and immigrant rights activist.

We’re reading “How to Center Your Own Story” by Chang, from the book, The Good Immigrant: 26 Writers Reflect on America, edited by Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman. From America Ferrera’s collection of essays American Like Me: Reflections on Life Between Cultures, we’ll read the book’s introduction by Ferrera, and essays by Cho, Rocero, and Bamba.

Join us for our Inclusive Reading Club (IRC) November 19 virtual discussion at 4pm on Reflections on Life in America. Register and acquire the readings at https://salve.libcal.com/event/7020680.

Vampires? Check.

Aliens? Yep.

Zombies? Duh, of course!

Below is just a small sample of the frightening films we currently have available in the library (get them soon before they disappear. . .) #mckillopdisplays
