Spaces of Color for AAPIs
My name is Annie Perng and I have been a Nurse Practitioner at the Penn Lung Center at Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine for the past 4 years. I am first generation Taiwanese American and grew up in New Jersey (just 15 minutes away from Manhattan's Chinatown). I have lived in many great places including Iowa, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, and the San Francisco Bay Area, prior to moving here for nursing school.
I write today to invite you to share some of your story too, at Spaces of Color for AAPIs, a new AAPI wellness resource for University of Pennsylvania Health System staff.
Spaces of Color was a grassroots effort created at Hospital of U Penn, to foster safe spaces for people who have experienced racism, microaggressions, and any other experiences as a minority. With the continued violence against Asian-looking people, UPHS reached out to me about developing a Spaces of Color group specifically for Asians, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.
My facilitators and I are excited to announce our first Spaces of Color for AAPIs session is on Monday, January 24th, from 7-8:30PM. All events remain virtual for now. To see our next session details and what we plan to discuss, please visit: https://www.penncobalt.com/in-the-studio?class=spaces-aapi.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions!!

Penn Libraries Presents: College House Delivery!
Want to get Penn Libraries items delivered directly to your College House? Sign up now!
We get it, some days you just don’t want to walk all the way to the library! For those who live off-campus, the Libraries is continuing to offer our popular Books By Mail service, which allows patrons to get materials shipped anywhere in the United States. On top of that, the Libraries have instituted a new College House Delivery service for students who live on campus. Much like Books by Mail, users will need to register ahead of time with the name of their College House. Then select College House Delivery when checking out from the Franklin catalog. Materials will be delivered to a cart outside the College House Office. Getting Penn Libraries items has never been easier! Residential students can sign up for dorm delivery at this link. Then, to request items in our catalog:
1. Click the "Get It" button (you may have to sign in first to see it)
2. Choose "Request In Print"
3. Select "College House Delivery"
Once we get your request, we'll pull your item, check it out to you, and deliver it to the library cart by your College House's business office. You'll know your item is on the way when you receive your loan receipt by email. You can pick up your item during the business office's open hours. Deliveries are made early afternoon Monday-Friday; if you need your item faster you can always request pickup at the library of your choosing, or you can take advantage of our new automated lockers at Van Pelt for maximum flexibility.
You can also return items to the library using the College House Delivery cart; simply place any items you no longer need on the bottom shelf of the cart (marked "book return") and we will pick it up the next time we're there and bring it back to the library to check it in and reshelve it.
