Power Up at Your Library Week (“Power Up” Week), October 1-7, is a time to celebrate Texas libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. The Texas Library Association started this promotion last year and the J. Ardis Bell Library at TCC Northeast Campus has joined in the fun with activities scheduled for Oct. 2-6. We’ll have creative crafts to make (bookmarks and pencil cases) and several stand-up characters to take Selfies with.
Want to see how a 3D printer works? Wander downstairs to the Library Computer Learning Center. Our LCLC staff can show you some items that have been printed using the NE Library’s 3D printers.
Check out a new book or a DVD, or get ahead on some school assignments. Learn how to use the WEPA print stations. Get help with resources for assignments from a librarian at the Reference/Information Desk.
