Quieting down

The library will be closed from May 22 until June 17th. This doesn’t mean you still can’t check out a book. If you hustle in here before 8pm and ask nicely, you might be able to check out that book over the break! Sweet!

Things will be a little quiet here on the blog — the writer won’t be working this summer, but she’ll try her best to write up interesting tidbits for you. Look for more about developing programs and new databases and books when we come back full-tilt in August.

Until then, have a great summer!

Enjoy the Silence…

You’re probably looking for a place to study right about now, what with finals breathing down your neck. Fortunately there are plenty of tables spread out about the library. Don’t forget about the study rooms in the back of the library. We ask that you remember that study rooms are intended for groups; if you’re by yourself in the study room, and the library is buzzing with activity and you see a desperate group of people looking for a space to study, please be considerate and give up the space. We would all really appreciate your generosity!

Summer Reading, Had Me A Blast…

Finals start next week, and you may be winding up your final papers. Perhaps you’re looking for a little light reading? Come check out our summer reading display! It’s full of books that might entertain you and take your mind off of things like isosceles triangles. Featured books include:

  • The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
  • Bone by Jeff Smith
  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  • Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  • Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
  • Singing in the Comeback Choir by Bebe Moore Campbell

These books will be on display all through the summer, so if you don’t get to them before the semester is over, you can come back during summer semester and check them out.

Have a seat

You may notice something different about the library — namely the new chairs spread about parts of the library. Why did we get new chairs? Because the old ones had a nasty habit of breaking when people were sitting in them. These we hope will be quite sturdy. And they come with a 20-year warranty!

Come check them out!
