Pi Day

Pi day is observed every year on March 14th (3/14) in celebration of the mathematical constant π. As the first three numbers of π are 3.14, it make sense to celebrate it on March (3rd month) 14th (14th day). This year in the Library is celebrating Pi(e) Day from Noon to 2pm on Tuesday, March 14th with pie! You'll be able to taste sweet and savory pies made by faculty, staff, and maybe a local company or two. 

This week our Serendipity Exhibit highlights everything math! You will find books, movies, and ebooks highlighting a variety of mathematical concepts relating to art, statistics, nature, etc. This week we even have a few books from the Valley Library highlighted!

Don't forget, 1Search is available to help you with your information needs. Or ask a librarian!
