We've been named Library of the Year by Iowa’s National History Day!

Northwestern’s DeWitt Library has been named the Library of the Year by Iowa’s National History Day organizers for helping area middle school and high school students prepare for the event!

Approximately 160 students from five schools used the library to conduct research. Northwestern’s librarians showed them how to access the facility’s resources and allowed instructors to check out materials.

“We give students the opportunity to engage in authentic research in an environment that wows them,” says Greta Grond, director of library services. “They love being in our instruction lab, exploring our extensive collection, getting a treat at our coffee bar, and having a college-like experience.”
