What is World Kindness Day?
World Kindness Day is apart of the World Kindness Movement where people attempt to make the world a better place by promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness. Currently, this day is celebrated in over 28 countries all over the world by individuals and organizations who want to support this cause.
Open Access Week 2019
Banned Books Week (September 22- 29, 2019) is an annual celebration of the freedom to read. Rod Library celebrates this week because literary freedom is an important component in not just academic freedom but the ever-changing development of society.

Thanks to a generous donation from UNI alumna Mary Ann Bolton, Rod Library has been able to award Undergraduate Research Awards to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary research, scholarship, and creative work of UNI’s undergraduate students.
At the center of Rod Library’s student involvement, Library Ambassadors volunteer at events with the library and promote resources to current and prospective students at browsing fairs as well as other university-related events across campus. In these weeks leading toward the end of the semester, we would like to introduce one of these exceptional students, Silvia Pellegrino.
As you may have heard, UNI Museum’s “Preserving the Past: Unveiling the Tusk” exhibit is set to premiere in early April. Conservation, scientific study, and interpretation of the mastodon tusk have been underway for the past three years, thanks to a $306,258 heritage grant from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust.
