Traditions Past and Present: Family Weekend 2019

Join us at Cooper Library in 416 on September 20th, 2019 from 3:00pm-6:00pm for Traditions Past and Present: Family Weekend 2019.

Clemson Libraries has changed throughout the years but has always been a hub of learning on campus. Visit Cooper Library to see our new spaces that support student learning and see how we’ve changed throughout the years. Learn how the Libraries can support your student while enjoying some refreshments and experiencing some Clemson history.


Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week (September 22-28, 2019) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

Be sure to check out our display of the most challenged books during the week of September 23, in the West Learning Commons at Cooper Library.


New Exhibit–Cooper Library

There’s a new exhibit in the lobby of Cooper Library. It’s called Background: 1962 and it’s all about what was happening in Clemson, in the US, and in the world just before Harvey Gantt became the first African American student at Clemson.

This exhibit is part of several exhibits that will occur throughout the year as part of series of events for “50 Years: Celebrating the Anniversary of Integration at Clemson”.

See more about the exhibit here or stop by Cooper and see it for yourself!
