In honor of National Library Week, Falvey is running a video contest! Submit a short video highlighting your favorite physical or virtual space in Falvey Memorial Library and why it is your favorite place. Do you see the library as a temple? A gaming location? Is it the first place you run to when looking for online resources? Or do you love the new "Speakers' Corner" on the first floor?
Your video could feature our online chat, a group study room, a special collection, your favorite chair, the third floor, a web page, the view of Mendel or the grotto, an article delivery service, a web request form or any other Library space or place.
The winning video will be featured on our website. The submitter(s) of the overall best video will win fabulous prizes!
