Langton urges students to follow the LC on social media. “If you are not following us, you should,” Langton said. The Instagram handle is @nwciowalibrary. “We provide important info about the library, as well as advertise fun events, activities and giveaways.”
Langton has helped put together several events, designs and information displays for the LC. These include afternoons in which drinks or snacks are served in the LC, coloring sheets that are put out during finals weeks and different highlighted pieces of books or studies displayed in the LC.
Even though campus has changed in many large and small ways since Langton was a student, she still holds a deep love for NW and the LC. She finds joy and fulfillment through her job, that allows her to be creative when planning events or activities and helpful to her LC coworkers as they navigate through the integrated library system.
If you need help in the LC, do not be afraid to ask. “Many people view librarians and library staff as always serious and slightly intimidating, but that does not describe the DeWitt Library staff,” Langton said. “We are here to help patrons find what they need, and we LOVE to help! While we are serious about doing our jobs well, we also enjoy having fun with students at the various events we host.”
So, whether you spend every free moment in the LC doing homework or stop by every so often, remember to be thankful for the amazing and important work that Langton has put into numerous parts of the LC. Just remember if you ever need help, Langton and all LC staff members are more than eager to help you in any way they can.
