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.

Display by Jordan Hogue, Class of ’22

Want Scary Movies? We’ve got ’em.

Vampires? Check.

Aliens? Yep.

Zombies? Duh, of course!

We have 241 Horror films, 249 Science Fiction films, 258 Fantasy films and 99 Horror TV series on DVD.

Whew.

And that doesn’t even include the terrifying tomes that will make you hide under the covers, fiction thrillers like If It Bleeds (Stephen King), or horror fiction like The Seer of Shadows (Avi).

Our entire popular DVD collection can be found on the first floor. They are sorted alphabetically by title so it’s easy to find just the movie you’re looking for — or browse the entire collection!

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

 

X-Files

Need a DVD player? Our library PCs play DVDs and we have two external USB DVD players for check-out. User Support Services (Ground Level) also allows students to borrow portable DVD players.
