Rod Library is a special place on campus because it welcomes all people to read, relax, and learn. My favorite area of the library is the Youth Collections. It offers rows and rows of colorful books along with quiet study space. Being an ambassador, I am hoping to share my love for libraries and the fantastic resources Rod Library has to offer with other students.

Rod Library is such a diverse space from the lively environment of the Book Bistro, and the Youth Collections' book selection, to the peaceful study rooms. The librarians and student assistants are an excellent resource for navigation on your next research paper. My favorite place is the top floor because if you're lucky enough to find a window seat, you'll have a beautiful view of the campus while studying!

What I like most about Rod Library is the abundant number of books. Walking through the stacks and seeing so many books puts me in awe. Of course, there is also the great “Rod-tastic” staff that will bend over backward to find articles and databases. I became a Library Ambassador to connect people with the library and share the positive impact our library has in everyone's lives.

Rod Library is essential for my classes because it provides credible resources for papers, projects, online and in-person, and so much more! As an art major, many tools are available in the Makerspace and an entire area dedicated to the Fine & Performing Arts. The UNI Museum is an excellent place for inspiration and is open for browsing during library hours. You can find one of my paintings hanging on the main floor!

To me, the library is like my home because I study, sleep, and eat here! I became an ambassador because I wanted to expose students to the resources and the willingness to offer help for everyone to succeed. Most students don’t know the library is very digital and is beyond the books. I try my best to spread the word around campus about how excellent a life and money saver, the library is!
