Christmas Break

Christmas Tree 2014 009A big congratulations on finishing out the quarter! Finals are done, the last papers have been submitted, good byes have been shared all around – and now it’s time for rest and relaxation.

We will be open through some of the break, in case you need a good book or are still finishing up some last minute work. From 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 and happy holidays to all!

Spring Break is Upon Us

4210_75837667799_5477350_nThis is it! Today marks the end of finals and the beginning of glorious Spring Break. Congratulations on being done with another quarter.

Let it be known that the Library will be open during the break. Our Spring Break hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you need a little light reading, check out our popular fiction collection or the Library of Congress classifications of PR (English Literature) or PS (American Literature) on the third floor for novels or poetry, as well as criticism of specific works and biographies of authors. The tech desk will also be open should you need anything from laptops to headphones.

Have a wonderful break, come back fresh, and we’ll be ready to help you with your research next quarter!

Thanksgiving and the Quiet Study Zone


Call number: PS3566.R36 I84

It’s a little hard to believe, but the quarter is already winding down and the holidays are just around the corner – and for this we cheer! But we also understand that between now and snow-laced, jingle-belled Christmas joy are those little things called Finals. For this we have quiet zones and ear plugs.

The Seminar Room on the second floor of the Library will turn into a quiet study zone during finals week. It will be available all day on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, the 8th and then after 6:00 p.m. on Monday, the 9th, and Tuesday the 10th. Feel free to settle in with a beverage or quiet snacks. We’re also distributing disposable ear plugs to block out extra sound – ask for a pair at the Circulation Desk, Reference Desk, or the Tech Desk. Need some extra study tips? Or help with research? Come on by, we are happy to answer any questions and help out in any way we can.

But first, Thanksgiving. We are closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, the 29th, and have reduced hours on Saturday the 30th from noon to 8:00 p.m.  We go back to normal hours on Sunday (10:00 a.m. to midnight).

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and safe holiday travels!
