Kee'Anthony Lindsley
& Dr. Ruth Kinnersley, Library Director
At the end of each school year Waggoner Library recognizes one student worker for exemplary service and outstanding leadership.   Those eligible (had to have worked a minimum of two semesters) are then voted on by their fellow student workers.  This year the recipient is Kee'Anthony Lindsley, a main circulation student worker.  Kee'Anthony is a Business major from Nashville graduating in Dec. 2014.  Kee'Anthony is shown with library director, Dr. Ruth Kinnersley with his award certificate.  Kee also received an Amazon gift card.  We are very proud to honor Kee'Anthony for his good work and excellent customer service.

Drop Everything and Read!!


You may remember that Beverly Cleary wrote about D.E.A.R. in Ramona Quimby, Age 8. Since then, “Drop Everything and Read” programs have been held nationwide on April 12th in honor of Mrs. Cleary’s birthday. We figured, why not “drop” the “day” and celebrate our beloved author, her timeless stories, and the joy of reading for the full month.  The official website is http://dropeverythingandread.com/   Celebrate especially today and Drop Everything and Read your favorite book, newspaper, journal, or blog!  We have it all in Waggoner Library and Instructional Resources Center!

April is National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month!

The Academy of American Poets established National Poetry Month in 1996 as a way to increase attention to the art of poetry for individuals and the media. The month is meant to be a way to celebrate poetry and poets and to increase visibility and availability of poetry in pop culture in the US. April was chosen after consultation with poets, booksellers, teachers, and librarians because it was thought to be a good fit after Black History Month in February and Women's History Month in March.

For ideas on how to celebrate National Poetry Month, check out this list of 30 ideas (one for every day of the month!) or come into the library to check out our main floor bulletin board or browse our online catalog to find a book of poems to read.
