The Monroe Library Friend of the Month for January is Alliciyia George! Alliciyia is a freshman Journalism major from Zachary, Louisiana, and is active on campus as a member of Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, First in the Pack, Crescent City Radio, and as a work study student for the library. Alliciyia enjoys writing and after graduation plans to enter the journalism field.
Alliciyia studies, attends meetings, conducts research, and writes papers in the Monroe Library, as well as makes good use of the computers, scanners, and graphic design software.
Alliciyia thinks that the library should consider offering more outreach events and displays for the students. Some of her suggestions include producing displays featuring books which were turned into movies, having movie nights at the library for those titles as well, offering a student book club, and having trivia nights. Alliciyia also suggested a student council to advise and assist the library on student outreach initiatives. While the library once had a Student Library Advisory Committee, it has not been active in several years. Thanks Alliciyia for reminding us what a great idea it is!
Thank you for using the Monroe Library, Alliciyia, and congratulations on being our Friend of the Month!
