Watch Kermit the Frog Explain How to Tap Into Everyday Creativity

Monday, April 20, 2015

In a talk given at TEDx in Mississippi, Kermit explains how creativity affects every aspect of everyday life. Everyone from janitors to scientists can use a creative boost to make their lives a little better. Even if your job doesn’t allow creative thought to flow freely, having a different perspective on a problem can give you the insight to solve it. Creativity isn’t limited to painting or playing music. As Kermit himself says, sometimes creativity can be as simple as allowing yourself to take advice from a talking frog.

We need your books!

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The Library will once again be participating in the Sustainable Living EcoFair.

We are hosting a Book Exchange – bring in your gently used books and exchange them for others that are new-to-you. Or donate them to the Library's ongoing Recreational Reading Book Exchange – we are always looking for new titles!

Everyone who participates in the exchange may enter a draw for an eco-prize.

And, get rid of your clean plastic bags at the same time! Swap a dozen or more for a re-usable Library bag.

The event will be held on:

  • Notre Dame Campus: Monday, April 20, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Roblin Centre: Wednesday, April 22, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For your convenience, books may be dropped off in the Library before the event.
