Important Library Information!

Renovations will be occurring in the Library this summer. In order to prepare for the renovation, we will have to box up and store the library’s collection which means materials will be unavailable for use. In order to get this completed in time, we will have to end the checkout of all books at 5:00 pm on Friday, April 22.

Since classes don’t end until Wednesday, May 11, this may leave you without research material, so please be sure to plan ahead. If you need print resources for research or pleasure reading, make sure you have what you need checked out by April 22. The online resources will not be affected – all of the databases will be available with no interruption. Also, you will still be able to return checked out items in the inside library return or in the outside book box. Computers will still be available in the current library location until the last day of classes (Wednesday, May 11). For Summer semester, we will have a temporary, limited library and computer lab available and the location will be announced before Summer term begins.

Renovations to the library will create a more centralized place for you to collaborate and learn. The new space will include expanded Wi-Fi access, comfortable furniture and access to the balcony where you can study and relax. We look forward to completion of this project in the Fall and seeing you in the new facilities!
