Last week, Turkey’s 55th Library Week was celebrated around the country, with the aim of focusing attention on books, libraries and librarians, and encouraging the habit of reading. At Bilkent, the University Library marked Library Week with a series of activities.
On Monday, a conversation on the topic “Bilkent Library From the Students’ Perspective” took place in the Main Library Art Gallery, where students shared their opinions about the library.
During Wednesday lunchtime, the annual “Bring a Book, Let’s Read Together” activity brought Bilkent students and academic and administrative staff together on the lawn between the Main Campus Library and the Rectorate building for an outdoor communal reading session.
And on Friday, a contest challenging participants to “Find the Library Map, Win the Prize” was held at the Library, in which Bilkenters competed to find the library map located somewhere in the building. First to find the map was Said Sattarov; he was named the contest winner.
