KirjastoKipitys event was held for the second time
KirjastoKipitys event was held for the second time this November. The event was organized by Student Union SAMO, Seinäjoki Public Library and SeAMK Library and it was aimed at all SeAMK students. Last year, the event attracted a nice group of attendees. This year, the number of participants was higher despite the clashing events.
Checkpoints to complete
Students got to know the libraries by completing some checkpoints. After completing a checkpoint, students received a stamp in the KirjastoKipitys Passport. They needed to complete at least 3 checkpoints to receive an awesome patch for their overalls.
Information retrieval task
The checkpoints in the SeAMK Library contained facts and fun. The first checkpoint was the information retrieval task: Searching for information to hit the goal. After presenting the information retrieval task, the students got a ball and three attempts to hit the goal. If they missed, a new information search had to be performed.
Book spine poetry
In the second checkpoint, students were able to create book spine poems from a selection of books. Book spine poetry is a fun way to make poems of the book titles. The books are arranged so that their titles create a poem. Poems can be quite short or consist of a higher stack of books. The poem is then read from the top to the bottom.
Checkpoints at Seinäjoki Public Library
At the Seinäjoki Public Library, the students were able to get to know its services. There were four checkpoints, and the students could test pin making, recognition of music instruments and play games like Kahoot! and Aivobic.
To be continued
Students completed the checkpoints either alone, with a pair, or in a larger group. Overall, the atmosphere was nice and relaxed, and the students liked the checkpoints in both libraries. The event is scheduled to take place again next year.
