    The Howard University Bookstore has decided to make all upcoming circulars (catalogues) digital beginning with the Black History Month edition. The Go Green initiative allows the HUB to reach a broader audience and achieve sustainability. As we go digital, students can access the catalogue on Facebook, Twitter, the HUB website, via email and open links on their smartphones. We have also implemented a newsletter through which we can share our new programs and initiatives. The newsletter will

    accompany the circular and will also be available on social networks, the HUB website and via email. In addition, going green keeps us current with technological advances and enhances our marketing efforts. As mentioned previously, this helps us to reach a broader audience such as faculty, staff, parents, prospective students and alumni.

    QuotableNew option for giftsGillian Simon and Mat Vogel started the store in New York in 1993, marking the company over a decade about 10 years ago. It began with a unsuccessful search of a simple holiday greeting card that would transcend the holidays and inspire their friends. Highly disappointed by the array of nonsensical cards they came across, they decided to go home and create 12 greeting cards of their own that would suit people who want more out of a greeting card; something meaningful. Simon and Vogel manifested their creation to local independent independent book stores and vendors around New York. Quotable appeals to a diverse demographic pursuing to inspire as many people as possible by spreading the words of some of the most gifted writers leaders and poets of our time. They allow the words themselves to serve as the

    foundation for the design allowing for an original and typographical style. Over the course of the following 10 years, their company became internationally recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing enterprise in the country. Quotable is best known for their cards, yet the companys product line has expanded during the first decade to include journals, notepads, mugs, magnets, and photo albums.

    In the winter of 2009 they began using 100% recycled materials for both the cards and envelopes.

    Quotable is now offered at Howard Universitys Bookstore, as

    well as other University bookstores, gift shops, airport terminals, coffee shops and more in the US and internationally.

    During Black History Month, Americans from around the country will celebrate the creativity, determination, and progress that African Americans have made to our nations identity and culture. This years celebration of Black History Month was an

    opportunity not just to look back and celebrate the achievements of our community, but also to honor the legacy of those that have come before us while fostering the leaders of tomorrow. From January 31st thru February 5th, Cabinet Members, Administration officials, and senior staff participated in events to highlight the various ways African Americans are winning the future by out-innovating, out-educating, and out-building our

    global competition.In addition to events, the White House featured African

    Americans from agencies throughout the Administration that contribute to the Presidents vision of winning the future through their efforts to move America forward. Each profile will post on the Celebrating Black History by Winning the Future webpage.

    On February 5th, White House staff and interns joined students from Howard Universitys School of Business and the Howard University Bookstore at the Operation Hope center in Washington, DC. Operation Hope is working with 5 Million Kidsa national campaign created by Quincy Jones to promote the importance of education and financial preparation for

    children and their parents in urban communities nationwide. The initiative also recruits volunteers for classrooms in underserved neighborhoods and mentorship opportunities.

    Operation Hope was founded by John Hope Brant, member of President Obamas Advisory Council on Financial Capability, and Ambassador Andrew Young. Operation HOPE has developed and implemented programs to connect minority communities with private sector resources and expand economic opportunities to underserved communities through financial literacy education.

    "During National African American History Month, we recognize the extraordinary achievements of African Americans and their essential role in shaping the story of America. In honor of their courage and contributions, let us resolve to carry forward together the promise of America for our children,"--President Obamas National African American Heritage Month Proclamation.
