“Love your library: Guess how many kisses are in the jar!” Contest. Last week, our FIU library lovers (students and faculty) from MMC & BBC were encouraged to guess how many Hershey’s candy kisses were the jar. Providing your guess was not the only thing the library wanted to know. Participants were also asked to give a reason why they loved the FIU Libraries, with an optional question of what they would love to see added to the library. In all, we received 48 entries including a few from our FIU Libraries’ Instagram and Twitter page. So, the question remains, how many kisses were in the jar?
There were 131 pieces of Hershey kisses in the jar. We congratulated Andrey Barrera, an FIU student, who came the closest with his answer of 127. Andrey claimed his prize of the candy and a $10 gift card to Starbucks. Thanks for loving the library, Andrey, in addition to suggesting having bean bag chairs in the library (sounds like a good idea for a tech fee)! Andrey may have walked away happy with his gifts but we, too, feel like winners.
We loved reading your answers on why you love the library and, for some, what you would love to see added in the library. We love to hear your remarks on how we provide a quiet place to study, the variety of materials, access to databases, and our friendly staff. Let's face it, you are the reason why we are here! We love to help and provide the very best for you.
Thank you FIU Library lovers!
