She Works Hard for a Living...

Originally uploaded by Tomes.
On Saturday, the new freshman class participated in SRU's inaugural one-book program. Author Barbara Ehrenreich spoke to facilitators in the morning, addressed the freshman class in the afternoon, and signed books in the library reference room. Small discussion groups met all over campus. Snaps and props to the Enrollment Services division, Dr. Yale, April Longwell, and Cathy Brinjak for making this event happen... it's a wonderful way to raise awareness of social issues, promote civic engagement, and set an academic tone for our new students. The librarians love all activities that encourage reading!

I have referred to the pathfinder that the librarians prepared previously, but thought some might find this site interesting....the worst jobs in history. There's a quiz to see how well suited you are to professions like bog iron hunter or rat catcher.
