The Libraries and Press do amazing work, and an Impact Report is compiled each year that concisely and elegantly describes the work that we do and how many students are impacted by the resources and services of the Libraries and Press.
In addition to scintillating facts and figures (like, how many people study and do research at the Valley Library in a year? Answer: 1.25 million) and an overview of some of the many accomplishments of Libraries and Press faculty and staff, there’s also some pretty cool quotes. Here’s one:
“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.” — Sidney Sheldon
