Reading by Dr. Lydia Kang February 24

Save the date for an author book reading by Dr. Lydia Kang on Wednesday, February 24 at 3:30pm in the library’s rare book room (8th floor).

Lydia Kang is a young adult author and physician who lives in Omaha with her husband and three children. She is endlessly fascinated by all things geek-related. Dr. Kang decided writing is as much fun as medicine and decided to do both. Her first two novels, Control and Catalyst are young adult sci-fi adventure/romances.  She is currently working on another young adult novel and a work of nonfiction.

A book signing and drawing for a copy of both Catalyst and Control will be held after the reading.


Student survey – check your email!

The library distributed a survey to students via email this week. We want you to tell us what you think of the library space and what services and information resources you need.  This information is very important as the library plans for the future.  Please complete the survey by Tuesday, February 15.

As an added incentive, we are offering five gift certificates for $25 each to Amazon.   After the Student Survey, you will be given the option to go to an additional site to enter your name and e-mail.   That information will only be used for the drawing, keeping your Student Survey input anonymous.

So, students, check your UNMC email for the survey link! And thank you!
