National Friends of Libraries Week Proclamation
Whereas, Friends of the Richard Bland College Library raise money that enables our Library to move from good to great—providing additional resources to support special collections, additional programming and special events throughout the year;
Whereas, the work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that our Library is the center of learning and intellectual growth on our campus -- connecting students with the thoughts, ideas, and intellectual contributions of others from ages past and to the present;
Whereas, the Friends understand the critical importance of a well funded library and work to articulate that importance to ensure that our Library gets the resources it needs to provide a wide variety of services including access to print and electronic materials, along with expert assistance in research and reader’s advisory;
Whereas, the very gift of the Friends’ time and commitment to the Library sets an example for all in how volunteerism leads to positive civic engagement and the overall betterment of campus life;
Now, therefore, be it resolved that Dr. James B. McNeer, President, Richard Bland College, proclaims October 18-24, 2009, as Friends of Libraries Week at Richard Bland College and urges everyone on campus to join and support the Friends of the Library and thank them for all they do to enrich our Library and, therefore, enhance academic achievement.
