In honor of National Library Week, Fairfield University's DiMenna-Nyselius Library held its second annual 'Stuff the Public Safety Cruiser' food drive to benefit the St. Charles Food Pantry in Bridgeport. Faculty, staff and students donated more than several hundred non-perishable items. The National Library Week celebration at Fairfield also included poetry readings by student poets, and the unveiling of "LibTube," a YouTube-inspired video of students, faculty and staff sharing why they love the DiMenna-Nyselius Library.
