John B. Cade Library celebrates National Library Week

It’s National Library Week

John B. Cade Libary at Southern University is celebrating National Libary Week with a number of in-person and virtual activities. The national theme, "Welcome to Your Library," promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building. Cade Library has adapted to unprecedented changes in the world by expanding services and continuing to meet the needs of patrons.

Collected food will be donated to a local food pantry. Outstanding items must be returned and donations brought to the library circulation desk before fines are forgiven. This promotion will continue through April 28.

Digital Literacy Day
Join Cade Library in launching its digital literacy initiative across the SU System.
