ZSR @ Food for Thought

Monday, April 22, 2013 12:48 pm

This year, the annual “Earth Day Fair” on Wake Forest’s campus became a themed event to highlight food injustice, and was entitled “Food for Thought”, sponsored by the Sustainability Office at WFU. The fair that was held on Manchester Plaza from noon to 6pm on Saturday, April 20th, was well attended and had local vendors of plants and delicious food, music throughout the day, as well as a petting zoo. ZSR was in attendance with a selection of books and videos that pertained to sustainable agriculture and food injustice as well as a selection of other topics related to sustainability

.

Students from Access worked with me throughout the day and we served up information about our collections to interested students, faculty, staff and community members. Though most of what I took out there was not circulated, we had an opportunity to circulate 2 books and 8 DVDs with our mobile circulation desk. I gave away book marks with suggested keywords on them to aid people to find more information in our catalog, as well as reading lists of books in ZSR’s collection on sustainability. It was a beautiful day to spread the word about Sustainability, and ZSR’s resources. Thanks to Mary Scanlon who helped identify resources, and the helpful students who work at the Access Desk on Saturday who helped me out with carrying things and holding down the papers against the wind. And, thanks to Susan who stopped by to take a few photos. Happy Earth Day!
