Need help de-stressing during Dead Week & Finals Week?
Pet Partners will be visiting the Library

Registered Pet Partner Teams (dogs and handlers) will be visiting campus to provide some "doggie therapy" for those who may be stressed out by finals or just want to relax a bit. (The dogs pictured are a few of many more that will be visiting!)
Dogs & their handlers will be in the Library:
Additional dogs, times & days may be added
Monday Dec. 3 10 - 4 pm
Tuesday Dec. 4 10 - 4 pm

Pet Partner teams have met certain standards of skills
and aptitude and are considered safe, healthy and well
behaved by various agencies. The dogs represent
registration in Delta Society of WA, Therapy Dogs
International, Love on a Leash, and Dogs on Call. While
Dogs on Call does not certify dogs themselves, they act
as a "placement agency" who accepts only registered
dogs on their roles, verifies their suitability and attempts
to connect them with organizations in the community.

Has someone been there for you
when you most needed a loyal friend?
Has your loyalty ever been tested?
How does it feel to stand up for someone --
or something --you believe in ?
The 4th Annual Whatcom WRITES! contest invites local writers to submit entries up to 800 words on the theme of loyalties. Write it -- then submit your fiction, nonfiction, or poetry by December 1, 2012.
Winners will be published in a printed anthology and invited to read their work at Village Books.
This contest celebrates the 2013 Whatcom READS!
book selection Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson.
Read the book and mark your calendar to see
award- winning author David Guterson in person
Feb. 19 - 21, 2013.
Whatcom WRITES! is an offshoot of the popular Whatcom READS! program, which encourages everyone in Whatcom County to read and discuss the same book. Bestselling author David Guterson's novel Snow Falling on Cedars has been selected as the 2013 Whatcom READS! title. The book, which is set on an island in the San Juans in the 1940s and 50s, explores many issues relating to loyalties -- to family, to country, to loved ones.
Entries must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 1, 2012. Winners will be published in an anthology, and invited to read their work at Village Books. Whatcom READS! and Whatcom WRITES! are a collaborative effort of every library in Whatcom County and Village Books, with funding provided by the Friends of the Bellingham Public Library and the Whatcom County Library Foundation.

Artists, historians, educators, map buffs... Western Libraries is consolidating its map collection and will be giving away surplus maps and atlases.
The giveaway will be held from noon to 8 pm, Tuesday, October 16th & Wednesday, October 17th, in Wilson Library, 4th floor Central.
These maps were received through depository or similar agreements and therefore Western cannot sell them, but they are free for the taking. They already have been offered to other libraries.

The Map Collection is located in Wilson Library Room 170 and is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. It contains more than 100,000 maps with an emphasis on the Pacific Northwest.
