Getting Back to Basics at Downtown Campus Library

Start the new year by starting something new! The Downtown Campus Library has books on display to help you find a new interest or hobby. Have you wanted to learn more about freshwater fish native to Florida? Or what about the basics of supply chain management? We have you covered at the DTC Library.

Have a hobby you love already? Tell us about it! January is National Hobby Month, and we want to know about it. Leave a note on our hobby display sharing what you love to do in your free time.

If the selections from our collection don’t pique your interest, come talk to us at the Doctor Philips Academic Commons, room 265. We will help you find something from the collection that you’ll love.

International Games Week 2021 at Downtown Campus Library

Take a moment to relax before the stress of finals by playing some games; visit the Downtown Campus Library between November 7-13 for International Games Week!

International Games Week began as International Games Day in 2007 as an attempt to break a world record for the most people playing the same game simultaneously. It has grown into a weeklong event to showcase games and gaming in libraries.

DTC Library is participating this year by offering take-and-play games and featuring the game design titles in our collection. Want something you can play one on one? Come grab a few sheets of Nim, Hedron, or Hex. Got a large group? Get a copy of our social deduction game, Swans and Bakers. If you are interested in collaborative storytelling, take a copy of the one-sheet games Dear Elizabeth… or Hey, this song reminds me of you.

Downtown Library Film Discussion: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

Join Downtown Campus Library for a virtual film discussion, open to all UCF and Valencia students, faculty, and staff. We will be discussing A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, available for free streaming on Kanopy. This is not a group watching event, so watch the film beforehand and come ready to discuss. The discussion will take place on June 26th at 6:00pm on Zoom. Click here to sign up! On the day of the film discussion, we will email you a link to the Zoom meeting.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is a 2014 Iranian horror film. This visually stunning, melancholic film concerns a skateboarding vampire and the quiet city she terrorizes. Directed and written by Ana Lily Amirpour, this film is for anyone who is a fan of westerns, vampires, and things that go bump in the night.

Downtown Library Book Club: The Glass Castle

The second meeting of the Downtown Library virtual book club will be on July 29th at 6:00pm. We will be discussing The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, a memoir of love, resilience, and the curses and blessings of growing up with intensely nonconforming parents. 

Join us and share your thoughts, feelings, and discussion points. Your hosts will have some questions prepared to prompt discussion, but feel free to ask your own! If you would like to read The Glass Castle online, there is a free full-text version available on the Internet Archive. 


Please sign up here to receive a Zoom meeting invitation. We look forward to seeing you on July 29th!
