Change Your World Week

The Library is hosting virtual Change Your World Week April 12th-16th. CYWW gives students the opportunity to find their voice in becoming a co-creator in the kind of community in which they want to live. The website features student-designed pages to raise awareness on issues they have researched. Each page represents student work to inform their peers and empower them to take action to enact a positive change in their community. Be sure to check it out next week!

Don't forget to complete survey!

Please be sure to check your Delta email (may be in your junk folder) for the Delta College Library Resources Evaluation Survey. Please complete the survey by April 16th to help us provide the best resources to Delta students, faculty and staff. You may choose to enter a drawing to win Delta swag!

Featured eBook:

Darius the Great Deserves Better

by Adib Khorram (New York: Dial Books. 2020)
A second chapter for the endearingly sweet, Star Trek-–loving “Fractional Persian” Darius Kellner. Blending broad themes like consent and toxic masculinity with the specificity of Darius’ intersectional identity (gay, white and Iranian), this coming-of-age masterpiece packs a multitude of truth and heart. (Kirkus Reviews, August 25, 2020)
