Have you wondered how climate change is projected to affect North Dakota? Dr. Adnan Akyüz will be at the Main Library to discuss facts, myths and misconceptions about North Dakota’s climate and its place within climate change.
Dr. Akyüz is the North Dakota state climatologist and an NDSU assistant professor of soil science. He is also director of the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network, in which he oversees the operation of the agricultural network of 72 automated weather stations.
The Libraries have joined in NDSU's annual United Way fundraising campaign. Michael Robinson, Interim Associate Director of the Libraries, agreed to dye his hair the color of the staff's choice if Libraries' employees raised more than $816 dollars (one dollar per pay period for each library employee). The staff donated a total of $823, and voted that Mike should dye his hair purple.
NDSU's United Way donations fund 86 programs for 54 local agencies.
The Main Library now has five mobile device charging stations available, with a sixth to arrive soon. These stations provide charging cords for almost all mobile devices. Up to eight devices can be charged at a time at each station.
