The Jefferson County Library Cooperative has launched a county-wide reading initiative called "Big Read" focusing on To Kill A Mockingbird. Project Mockingbird is encouraging the Jefferson County community to read, review, and discuss this classic book, whose themes continue to resonate almost 50 years after its publication.

There is a great variety of activities, including several Samford-based events, associated with Project Mockingbird. For a complete listing of programs, please stop by the reference department and pick up a copy of The Reader (the Public Librariese of Jefferson County magazine), or visit http://www.projectmockingbird.org/.

The new library system is a reality. Please join us on Thursday March 13 at 2:00 p.m. in the University Library for an interactive open house to learn about the Millennium library system at Samford. This is a great opportunity for members of the university community to ask questions and enjoy some mid-afternoon treats.

If you have any questions, please call Naomi Gold at ext. 2770, or email ngold@samford.edu.
