For Valentine’s Day, the Rebecca Crown Library created a spin on the idea of a blind date and picked some great reads. These books can be brought home and read for your pleasure.
The catch: We want to know how your time together went. Using Instagram, create a post starting with “I had a blind date with (use book title and author) and…” you fill in the rest. Let us know if it was a match, a terrible experience, or a rekindled pairing. You can also tweet us @domlibrary. Use #dominicanu for any posts.
The Rebecca Crown Library is displaying helpful apps for all students in various forms of college life. Apps for help inside the classroom include Google Drive, Duolingo, and Canvas. There are also useful apps for outside of the classroom which include GrubHub, Amazon Student Prime, and AllRecipes Dinner Spinner. These apps are free in the App Store for Apple Devices and Google Play for Android Devices. Some film and literature can be checked out as well. Pitch Perfect and The Great Debaters portray different examples of college life. My Roommate is Driving Me Crazy by Susan Fee and The College Fear Factor by Rebecca D. Cox are a few examples of books that provide information about surviving college life.
Summer is a time for fun, sun, and most importantly, finding a song to define the season. The Rebecca Crown Library is showing off some older but classic material. Come take a look through some of our more popular CDs ranging from The Lion King to Carmen. There are also DVDs including The Sound of Music, Standing in the Shadows of Motown, and American Folk Blues Festival. For the history buffs, we also have books covering Hip-Hop, Rock, and Pop Music. Further more, look at the different vinyl cover art and covers on the sheet music to see how art has changed through the years in the display cabinet.
