Celebrating National Library Week

Karen Estlund PortraitNational Library Week, April 4-10, is an opportunity for us to remember the profound and lasting impact libraries have on their communities. Here at Colorado State University, every Ram is on a unique educational journey, and the CSU Libraries is there for every learner, every day. 

In this issue of Stay Connected, we are highlighting the diverse ways we impact learners at their most memorable milestones as Rams, from orientation to graduation.  

We ensure students have access to the materials they need to succeed in their courses. We advocate for educational affordability. We teach students to be critical thinkers and scholarsWe financially support our many student workers as they prepare for careers. Most importantly, we partner with organizations and donors across the University to create an even bigger impact. 

I hope these stories about the Libraries’ impact on our brilliant learners inspire you.

Maintaining proper social distance meant something entirely different to some of the first students at Colorado State University than it does to those on campus in 2021.
