Library Announcements

  • Thank you to everyone who stopped by during National Library Week, and welcome new newsletter subscribers!
  • We handed out nearly 100 Finals Care Kits to students in April! We sincerely hope they came in handy during those stressful last few weeks of the semester. Stay tuned for news about future care kit giveaways next semester.
  • Visitors may have noticed that the library has new automatic doors! They can be operated by pressing the buttons located on the exterior and interior of the library near the entrance. We strive to make the library as accessible as possible to all. If you have any concerns or suggestions regarding accessibility, please let us know by emailing
  • During the upcoming summer semester, the library will continue to be open Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Please keep in mind that if you need computer or printer access when the library is not open the Computer Lab in room 202 is also available to students.
