Food for Fines will run from Monday, March 19 through Friday, April 8. Students can bring in canned goods to take care of their fines and help the community at the same time.
The purpose of the competition and exhibition is to encourage developing student’s work in the medium of Artists’ Books, to foster the creation of Artists’ Books, reward excellence and creativity in the medium of Artists’ Books, and to build the collection of Artists’ Books in UNT Special Collections.
David J. Cameron will discuss how the intersections of race and religion in the Bayou City shaped Houston-area Baptists’ participation in the struggle for civil rights through religious associations, churches, and leaders.
Starting Monday, July 23 and continuing through August 10, students can bring in cans of food and receive a reduction on their fines. 1 can = $1.00 and only applies to fines. Can must be larger than 12 oz and cannot be dented or expired. The maximum reduction is $20.00. Students can bring the items to the Willis Library Services Desk during regular service desk hours.
In a word: it's too hot this summer.
The best solution is to wade in a pool all day. Since we all have jobs or things to do, the next best solution is to talk about water long enough until you naturally cool off. Since World Ocean Day came and went in early June, we at UNT Libraries considered this a great time to dive into (get it?) our vast resources on the oceans around our little world.
UNT is one of the first US universities to join a global alliance for accelerating the transition to open access scholarship.
