As part of the GE 250-251 program, Bilkent University Library recently held an essay competition entitled “My First Library Experience.” Last week, the Library announced the three best submissions for the competition.
The overall winner was Emina Hasanagic (POLS), whose essay “My First Visit to the Library” was selected by a panel of judges from the Library and the Departments of English Literature and Turkish Literature.
Second place went to Anıl Rızaoğlu (EEE) for his essay “Göz Göze Gelmek Bilkent Kütüphanesi’yle,” and third place to Alper Özyurt (MAN) for his piece entitled “Sonsuzluk Özlemi.”
The three winners were awarded certificates in a ceremony at the Library on February 5. Please enjoy reading the first part of Emina’s “My First Visit to the Library” on page 3 of
this issue of Bilkent News. All three of the prize-winning essays may be found in full online on the Library’s blog.
