LWC library staff goes 'super' for information fair

By Duane Bonifer

Most of the time, the staff members of the Lindsey Wilson College Katie Murrell Library are mild-mannered folks.

But on Tuesday, Aug. 18, they showed off their super-library powers and personalities to the college's new students at the annual information fair.

The Murrell Library staff dressed as "Super-Heroes of Knowledge" to illustrate the services they provide students, faculty, staff and the general public throughout the year.

Student visitors were also given trading cards that introduced them to the library staff and other support services. At the end of the information fair, students cashed in their trading cards at the LWC writing center for prizes.

In addition to the Murrell Library, LWC's new students also toured the math lab, writing center and Academic Success Center. The information fair was supported by "Lindsey Writes," a campuswide initiative designed to encourage writing across the college's curriculum.

LWC's 2015-16 school year officially begins Wednesday, Aug. 19.
