Here are some pics of the origami display at the Cato Campus. Sharon Nance put the display together.
The origami was created by Yan Wang’s (our library cataloger) mother. Ruiyu Zhao came from China to visit her daughter’s family here in Charlotte. She loves the weather and people here. She enjoys doing origami with her two grandsons and planting flowers.
Check out the new leisure reading books we got this summer! The list is posted here.

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!

Our August display was created by Brian Anderson, an instructor in the English, Reading, and Humanities Department. This special display, created from Brian’s own personal collection, is entitled Books Go to War.
The display housed books ranging from classics to topics like humor and sports. All of these titles are Armed Services Editions and in most cases are the complete work. The titles included in the display largely covered 1943-47. Looks like our GI’s were well-read! Brian notes that some of the editions were being republished for the Iraq war.
