October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s time to think about getting that mammogram you’ve been putting off. Come by the NSU Broken Arrow Library and check out our Breast Cancer displays. The display on the 1st floor is filled with information on Breast Cancer stats and more.
Did you know:

  1. Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among U.S. women (excluding skin cancers) with about 252,710 new cases expected to be diagnosed in 2017
  2. It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in the U.S.
  3. Eighty-one percent of breast cancers are diagnosed among women ages 50 years and older
  4. Non-Hispanic white (NHW) and non-Hispanic black (NHB) women have higher breast cancer incidence and death rates than women of other race/ethnicities
  5. MEN: The American Cancer Society estimates for breast cancer in men in the United States for 2017 are:
    • About 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed
    • About 460 men will die from breast cancer

Stop at the Breast Cancer display table on the 2nd floor and honor or remember a loved one. Write a note and pick up a treat. Remember to do your self-exams and tell other women (and men) about the importance of learning about Breast Cancer.

Here’s to Libraries, Number Ten!

El_Escorial_SpainLocated in the heart of Spain, the Royal Library of the Monastery of El Escorial is a stunning architectural wonder (as well as a World Heritage site designation).  Built in the Herrerian style, construction began in 1563 and was completed in 1584.  The library is housed on the second floor (in the west wing) and contains nearly 45,000 documents from the 15th and 16th centuries.  The monastery is huge and contains 15 cloisters, 13 oratories, 86 staircases, 88 fountains, more than 1,600 paintings, 9 towers, and 73 sculptures.

“When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you.”  (Keith Richards)

Here’s to Libraries, Number Nine!

biblioteca_joaninaThis week we will highlight the Biblioteca Joanina, the Baroque library at the University of Coimbra (Portugal).  This library was built in the 18th century while King João V ruled.  The library houses approximately 250,000 books from the 13th through the 19th centuries.  This historic library is considered a National Monument — the most visited monument on the campus.  The basement of the library had even served as a prison at one point in time.

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.”  (Sidney Sheldon)
