3) What’s your favorite part of your job? Next to the people I work with and for, its the chance to learns new things and share them.
4) What’s something intersting about you that people may not know? If I told you, you would know! (True – but ask Frank about printing)
5) What’s your favorite book? The next one!

Sharon Nance put together a small, but timely and interesting display of the CPCC library collection of “banned books” to recognize the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week. During our Student Resources Day at Cato, we spotlighted these titles. Students were shocked to see some of their favorites in the group. The Harry Potter books, The Bridge to Terabithia, A Wrinkle in Time and I know Why the Caged Bird Sings were mentioned most.
ALA’s slogan this year is “Read Banned Books!” Yes, do.
Sonia Coffin, Elaine Kushmaul, Yolyndra Green, Linda Colbert, and Velma Jackson greeted students during the Central Campus Student Resources Day.
Over 400 students were contacted by the libraries from all of the Student Resources Day activities at each CPCC Campus.
And you thought library workers were quiet!
