Beginning today (March 18, 2024), the Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library will be handing out FREE solar eclipse glasses to CIA students and employees so you can safely experience the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024! 

The library has a limited number of glasses, so we will be giving out one pair per CIA ID on a first come, first served basis. We want everyone at CIA to have the chance to get glasses if they need them. 

You must show your CIA ID to get a pair of glasses - no exceptions!

Banned Books Week is October 1-7. The week celebrates the freedom to read and spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. Between January 1 - August 31, 2023, The American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) documented challenges to 1,915 unique titles - a 20% increase from the same reporting period in 2022, which saw the highest number of book challenges since ALA began compiling the data more than 20 years ago. The theme for Banned Books Week 2023 is "Let Freedom Read. When we ban books, we're closing off readers to people, places, and perspectives. But when we stand up for stories, we unleash the power that lies inside every book. We liberate the array of voices that need to be heard and the scenes that need to be seen. Let freedom read! (Source: ALA.org)

To commemorate, CIA Gund Library will display banned and challenged books from our collection throughout the month of October. See our Library Displays Guide for more info. Please stop by to learn more about banned books!
