READ with our Scholar Athletes

Jay Galloway, Football, Communication Studies Major
This fall, the Library and the Athletics Department have teamed up to promote reading by bringing you an exhibit featuring handpicked Scholar Athletes from each major sport at Samford.

Fares Kilani, Men's Tennis, Accounting Major
Brandon Hayman, Men's Basketball, Accounting Major

The American Library Association's READ campaign started in 1985 and has featured nearly two hundred celebrities holding their favorite books, all to promote one thing-- reading.
Caroline Wilder, Softball, Nursing Major

Hope May, Freshman Selfie Volunteer

This may be just the beginning of Samford's READ campaign.  We'd love to get other team members, professors, and administrators on their own READ posters.  We also invite you to come by the library, take your very own READ selfie, and tag us with #DavisLibrary on social media.

Lauren Caballero, Women's Tennis, Marketing Major

Stop by the library today and take a look at our READ posters, or visit us on Facebook where we'll be highlighting our featured READ poster students over the next couple of weeks.

Most importantly: get out there and READ, Samford!
