AUK Library Holds its 5th Annual Open House

The Library at the American University of Kuwait held its annual open house for members of the AUK community in February.

The event was aimed to showcase library resources, services and technologies to all members of the AUK community, and provides an opportunity for the library to highlight new collections and demonstrate interactive technologies employed in its facilities. The open house objective was to help enhance students’ experience and increase their engagement with the library.

The open house featured booths and displays organized by Sigma Tau Delta, Fikir, and the English Club. Each of the student clubs’ displays highlighted social themes, such as female empowerment and heroism in young adult novels, and how reading and literature can foster tolerance and help promote a better understanding of diversity to avoid ethnocentrism, stereotyping, and discrimination. The Intensive English Program (IEP) also participated by setting a reading corner inside the library.

The event program also included educational games, such as the “Spinning Wheel” and the “Fiction Challenge”, which required participants to go through the fiction collection and come back with answers. All participants had the chance to enter the raffle draw for a chance to win one of the five big prizes, including IPAD mini 4, Oxford Arabic Dictionary, FUJI Insta Camera, Samsung Galaxy tab and gift vouchers. Prizes were sponsored by library's partners and international publishers including Cengage Learning, Oxford University Press, EBSCO and Emerald group publishing.

During the open house, guests were treated to a live musical performance by the Kuwaiti band “Sons of Yusuf”, and were able to capture moments in a photo booth, or have caricatures of themselves made, or spent some creative time coloring in bookmarks.
