Personalizing Earthquake Relief Efforts

Filed under: News — Tags: , , , — pam @ 7:34 pm

Honoring the long-standing relationship between the people of Japan and CCNY, the CCNY Libraries have begun a fund raising campaign for earthquake and tsunami relief. Okawa Elementary School in Ishinomaki-city, Miyagi prefecture, was particularly hard hit by both the quake and the wave.

Its remaining students and teachers will return to classes in borrowed rooms in late April and are in dire need of support. You can join us in offering support by:

@ Donating at the Library Table April 12 from 12pm-2pm in the NAC rotunda

@ Donating at the Cherry Blossom Film Festival April 28-May 5

@ Donating at the 5th Floor Library Administration Office, NAC 5/333

In addition, all proceeds from the Student-Only Library Book Sale preview sale on May 9 will be sent to Okawa Elementary School.

Watch for the upcoming issue of CircumSpice for more details or pick up a flyer at a donation site.

International Beaver Day

Filed under: Popular — Tags: , — pam @ 12:37 pm

April 7th is dedicated to nature’s engineer, the amazing beaver!  Today we celebrate the species that restores the most valuable terrestrial ecosystem—wetlands. International Beaver Day was created to highlight the animal that acts as our life support system by restoring wetlands that absorb carbon dioxide and help moderate the droughts and major floods that are increasing with global warming.

April 7th was chosen as International Beaver Day because it is the birthday of the late Dorothy Richards of Little Falls, New York, who studied beavers for 50 years.

Beaver pride!
