Edible Book Festival 2007

There is no better way to show your love of words and books than to eat them at Hunter Library!

WCU students, faculty, and staff, and community members of all ages, are cordially invited to join us for the Annual Cullowhee Edible Books Festival on Monday, April 2, from 2-3:30 on Hunter Library’s main floor.

Use your creativity and “create” a book, using unique, but edible, materials. Entries may be brought in any time between 8am and the start of the reception. For inspiration, see http://www.books2eat.com/. Jeanette Evans, owner of the Mad Batter restaurant in Cullowhee, will judge the entries during the event. While we welcome all guests to bring an entry, they are certainly not required for attendance.

If you’re hungry for knowledge, we hope to see you there!

Sponsored by Hunter Library and the Department of Art & Design

New Viewing Areas and CMC Reserve Options!

Starting March 12, 2007, Hunter Library is making it easier for you to view video & DVD course reserves. While these reserves must still be checked out at the Curriculum Materials Center (CMC), you will be able to watch them at two new viewing areas in microfilm rooms 1 and 4 on Hunter’s main floor (both DVD and VHS). You can also watch DVDs on a laptop anywhere in the Library. Remember that laptops are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk.

We’ve also added four new 27” televisions, two in these new areas and two at the CMC. These large screens make it more conducive to multiple people watching video/DVD course reserves at once.
