Celebrate National Library Week with the UW Law Library!

Each year, the UW Law Library celebrates National Library Week by putting on a series of events, giveaways and workshops for faculty, staff and students. If you are able, please join us for any of the events listed below.

Monday, April 9th: Book Giveaway at the Law Library Entrance - Stop by and see if you can find a great new book (a treatise, a fiction book, or general nonfiction, we have it all!)

Thursday, April 12: Trivia Contest in the Atrium (from 5:30-7:00) - Join the Law Library as we play some (non-law) trivia. We'll have free pizza, Starbucks gift cards, and of course, the company of the Law Library!

All week - Make your own READ Poster - Students and staff are welcome to visit the Circulation desk, grab their favorite book and some props and make a beautiful literary poster. It's free and you get your own copy either in print or digitally (or both)!

All week - Candy Jar guessing game - Everyone loves M& you can win a whole jar of them! Just stop by the Reference Desk and make your best guess about how many are in the jar. If you are closest, you win every single M&M in there! Yum!

What are UW Law Faculty and Staff Reading Guide - Available now! Check out some great book recommendations from faculty and staff from all across the building.

Finally, one of the Law Library's favorite traditions is our annual Faculty READ poster that we hang around the library. The Law Library has been creating the READ posters since 2006, and you can see our entire collection online here. Our newest addition is Prof. Alta Charo. Her poster will be proudly displayed in the entrance of the Law Library for the year.
