Graphic Novels at the Resnick library

Welcome back to campus! The library staff hopes that everyone had a good break and is coming back ready for the spring semester.

The start of the semester can be overwhelming so why not pick up some light reading and check out one of the libraries new graphic novels. The graphic novel collection is currently on display on the new book shelf at the front of the library and includes titles like The Walking Dead, V for Vendetta and Batman: The Long Halloween. Graphic novels aren’t just limited to stories about super heroes; they cover a wide array of genres. Graphic novels can be a memoir, like Alison Bechdel’s award winning Fun Home (which caused controversy in South Carolina last year), a coming of age story like Ghost World, or a post-apocalyptic adventure like The Walking Dead (the graphic novel series that inspired the TV show).

The library has over 20 graphic novels to choose from. Come in and check them out and if there’s something we don’t have, feel free to suggest a purchase. Happy Reading!

Pam’s Big News

Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with great joy and a little nervousness that I tell you I will be retiring at the end of this summer, 2015. I want everyone to hear the story straight from me, and have decided a letter is the best vehicle.

SUNY Delhi has been incredibly good to me, and I hope I have made a difference and given back in some meaningful ways. I love our campus, our dedicated faculty and staff, and our richly diverse body of students.

I certainly imagined working a few more years, but personal circumstances are driving me to retire early. I am excited about the life ahead with my family and friends, and starting a totally new kind of “To Do” list. Those of you who know me know how much I enjoy being outdoors: hiking, birding, biking, gardening and am an avid concert goer. There are many places in this world to explore (Italy, Thailand, Scotland top the list), and I want to travel while I can. I also look forward to keeping in touch with many of you and hearing about the new directions Delhi is heading towards in the future.

I am confident we will be able to find a fantastic, dynamic new director to lead the Resnick Library into the next generation. Delhi is a great place to work for someone who likes to get her hands dirty, wear lots of hats, move fast, and work with a great staff. The college is in good shape, we have a beautiful library and learning center with resources and services highly valued by our faculty and students.

As plans for a search get underway, I will keep the campus community informed.  Meanwhile, I have a full semester ahead of me. If you have questions for me, I’m here!

Thank all of you for making Delhi a great place to work and a hard place to leave.
~ Pam Peters, Resnick Library Director
