In Gurdon’s article, she argues that now at days, children’s books are being created with the more brutal and horrific versions of reality rather than how it was back in […]

In her article, Meghan Cox Gurdon claims that the majority of the books written for the young adult audience are too crude and explicit for any audience. In her opinion, it is harmful for young readers to be expose to such profanity because the behaviors that the teens witness are somewhat contagious. She feels that […]

Let’s be real, I got lost trying to find the classroom in the library, I found it eventually though so it’s all good. ANYWAY. I took a seat in the back and basically took a refresher course of what I had already learned about using databases back in high school. I honestly cannot even begin […]

On Monday, we didn’t go to Keily 429 like we do every week, we took a mini field trip to the library. However, this was not my first time there. I have been to library several times to read, do homework, or print out articles and/or papers that are due the same day. I like […]

They came to the library instead of the cafeteria to kill time. However, I usually go to the Queens College library during my lunch hour with Naying. The place […]

The library was okay. I’ve been here plenty of times to write in my journal, and I think its a good place if you wan’t to be alone in silence. I wouldn’t recommend coming here during free hour (especially on the printing floor) though because it gets kind of loud. As for the class itself, […]
