Library Open Doors

The library has been always known as a quiet place for research and study; however, Tuesday October 29 will be very different. The library team is organizing an “Open Doors” event from 10:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m., where students and users can “Play, Learn and Win.”

The Open Doors competition is composed of games that challenge the minds of students and library users. The major contest is the “Amazing Race”; competitors are expected to answer questions that tackle major library services and collections, in addition to several research questions. The 1st prize winner will get a laptop. Another competition that will take place on the Library’s Facebook is “Renaming the Multisearch Service”; competitors have to learn about this service and come up with the best name that describes it, and it will be used on the Library official website. The winner will get an IPad. The third competition is “Best Photo of the Library”; competitors are expected to load photos taken in the library on the Facebook page and the winner will get a Nikon digital camera. The 4th big prize is a Kindle reader. Contestants are tested for their general knowledge mostly about books. Many other small games will be running during the day and winners will get small gadgets and items. 

All students and library users are invited to participate in this event. Competitions will stop at 2:00 p.m.; students can have a break and enjoy the music while awaiting the results that will be announced live at 3:30 p.m. 

With such exciting, challenging, and rewarding event, one cannot but look forward to more inspiring activities in the library.
