Respect Give It Get It

R.E.S.P.E.C.T  (in the Library)

Aretha Franklin sang about it...Rodney Dangerfield complained he never got any.  Respect is a simple thing that our parents taught us, but sometimes is forgotten about in day to day life.

Respect: treating others the way you’d want to be treated.  Holding a door open for someone; listening to each other viewpoints; seeing people for who they are and not trying to change them; not being selfish with space; following the rules.  These are just a few examples of respect in our daily lives.  Small things can make a big difference.

During April exams, the library is launching a small Respect campaign with a video and digital signage.  This campaign is a small reminder to everyone to “Respect the space and Respect one another”.  Make the library an enjoyable space for everyone.   The campaign focuses on 4 different characters: Noisy Nelly, Messy Jessie, Greedy Gus, and Entitled Edward.  The traits that are shown are based on the common complaints the library receives, particularly during exams. Let’s work together to create a space that everyone can enjoy.

Respect – Give It, Get It


Great initiative McMaster! Loved the video and the characters. Now if only the last girl at the end would tuck in her chair!
