Library accepting entries for video contest

March 27, 2012 Community Print Print

To celebrate National Library Week, which is the first week in April, the OCCC Library has asked students, faculty, and staff to submit videos for their contest, “What I love about the OCCC Library.”

Electronic Services and Reference Librarian Amanda Lemon said that the Library Marketing Committee is looking for different perspectives.

“We’re hoping to see something that people love about the library that we don’t necessarily see,” Lemon said.

“We’re trying to see the library through other people’s eyes.”

Since May of 1996, OCCC students have utilized the large iconic building with the clock tower as their library. Since 2004 it has been called the Keith Leftwich Memorial Library.

There will be a Sony e-reader for first prize and second place will receive a $25 Carson’s gift certificate.

Mary Grace Berkowitz, cataloger and reference librarian, said submissions can be made via the internet.

“Submissions should be uploaded to a video site, and the url should be sent to” Berkowitz said.
