Christmas Break Hours

Happy holidays from the Library! December 11-23, our hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  On Christmas Eve, we are open from 8:00 a.m. to noon. We then take part in the university-wide Christmas closure December 25 through January 1, 2014. We return on January 2, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Come check out a DVD, a book from the Popular Fiction Collection, or enjoy the quiet of our reading room, and the lovely Christmas tree made of books therein. Merry Christmas to all!

Pick up something fun to read over Christmas break

Read for pleasure over Christmas break! Our Popular Fiction Collection, displayed in the Reading Room on the main floor, contains approximately 80 titles available for your instant gratification. Stop in before the end of classes, or pick one out during the break, and indulge.

Did You Know?

Pulled a book off the shelf, but aren’t going to check it out? Leave it on one of the green painted shelves located on each floor, typically on the outside corners of the general collection. Items are picked up periodically by a library staff member, counted, and re-shelved. Thanks for helping us out!
