Leddy Library invites students, faculty, and staff to come out on Wednesday, Jan. 23, to meet FRED, the Windsor Public Library bookmobile. The vehicle will be outside the Leddy Library’s main entrance from noon to 2 p.m.
FRED, an acronym for the “Freedom to Read, Educate and Discover,” is the Windsor Public Library on wheels. It delivers both recreational and educational materials to campus for borrowers.
With a Windsor Public Library membership, students, faculty, and staff can take advantage of an extended collection and get access to popular books; DVDs; magazines; games; international, national, and local newspapers; and thousands of e-resources — including popular digital streaming apps like Kanopy and Hoopla that provide access to movies, documentaries, eBooks, and audiobooks.
The public library also offers pre-loaded tablet loans and even a tool-lending library.
Karen Pillon, associate librarian at the Leddy Library, said its staff is excited to partner with the public library.
“Students will be able to access all the benefits of the public library without leaving campus,” she said.
All University of Windsor students, faculty, and staff are eligible for membership. To set up a membership during FRED’s visit, bring:
- a valid UwinCARD,
- one piece of government-issued photo ID, and
- a document with your current mailing address.
