I am beyond excited to announce that on June 6th, the NSVRC Library achieved a milestone. On this extraordinary day, the library collection reached 30,000! As it stands now, we have surpassed a long awaited goal of reaching and going beyond this fantastic number of unique titles. These are titles that pertain specifically to sexual violence, prevention, and other related topics.

This week we lost an incredible individual. Maya Angelou was many things to many people. I listened to her narratives in History classes and analyzed her poetry in English classes in college. Her way with words was absolutely mesmerizing. She had an ability to tackle issues that no one wanted to hear and turn them into something exquisite.

Last Friday, February 14th, many celebrated a day of hearts, flowers and candy. Couples swooned and hearts filled with love. Yes, Valentine’s Day can be special for some, but to many it’s just another day.  The month of February however, is also American Heart Month. Most are probably aware that heart disease is the number one killer of men and women.
