Read-In on the Quad

Dr. Myron Schirer-Suter, director of library services, writes:
“Without a doubt the publishing business is changing. Google returns over 3 million web pages that herald the 'death of the book.' But to take a cue from Mark Twain, the reports of the death of the book are greatly exaggerated.”
In celebration of National Library Week, over 100 Gordon College students spent from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. on April 16 on the quad in front of Jenks Library reading books. A wide span of material was represented, from God in Search of Man to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Prize drawings, dorm competition and homemade cookies were all a great success. Thirteen students won prizes, including 1G flash drives and iPod Shuffles, with the road halls and Drew taking prizes as well. The College Bookstore donated a gift basket.
