Respect Give It Get It with an arrow in a circular formation

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

RESPECT: treating others the way you wish to be treated.  Holding a door open for someone; listening to each others views; seeing people for who they are; 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.

To help draw attention to this issue, the Library is launching its Respect Campaign on Tuesday September 24th from 1-3 pm in the lobby of Mills Library.  This campaign is a reminder to everyone to "Respect the space and Respect one another". 

The campaign focuses on 4 different characters: Noisy Nelly, Messy Jessie, Greedy Gus, and Entitled Edward.  The traits that are shown are based on common complaints the library receives, particularly during exams.  Let's work together to create a space that everyone can enjoy.

Come check out the Campaign in the lobby of Mills Library on Sept. 24th.  We will showcase our Respect videos and posters and there will be displays and pamphlets.  Pick up your Respect button to wear and help promote the campaign.  Have thoughts about Respect?  There will be paper for you to contribute your own message about respect.

Respect - Give it, Get it!!
