A simple greeting can open connections and communication between people. It can be a one word, a smile, a nod. Today, along with our University of Alberta community, we celebrate World Hello Day (a little early, we know).
Taken from the University’s Days of Action site, “World Hello Day—is a global event with 180 countries taking part—created in 1973 to respond to the conflict between Egypt and Israel. Using communication instead of force as a tool to promote peace, this day encourages each of us to say “hello” to ten people, be it an old friend or someone new. Extending a greeting is also one of the steps we can take to create and build social connections with others”.
Our staff at the U of A Library compiled some of our favourite quotes, pictures and Bitmoji’s to send some virtual cheer to our community. These are words that move us and images that convey the spirit of solidarity during these challenging times spent apart.
We wish you the best as you near the end of this unique Fall 2020 semester. Our Library staff are here to support you as you find those final bits of information for your term papers or need advice on where to find a citation guide. Just Ask Us!
