The NMSU Library will host its first annual Sunshine Week reception on Wednesday, March 13, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., on the third floor of Zuhl Library. The free public event is being held in conjunction with National Sunshine Week, running March 10 to 16. Sunshine Week is a national event aiming to promote and educate about the importance of open government, transparency and freedom of information.
1st and 2nd place winners of the Library’s Sunshine Week essay contest will be honored, followed by featured speaker Walter Rubel, Managing Editor of the Las Cruces Sun-News. Rubel will share his own experiences fighting for open government and discuss the important role Sunshine Laws play in modern democracy.
