Welcome to Summer! Special Hours and Special Art

Welcome to Summer term! Summer library hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:30 am to 8 pm.

We're starting off the semester with an odd blip in our hours. On Tuesday, May 19, we will close at 4 pm for a special event located in the library.

During finals, we offered the opportunity to relieve your stress by coloring. Some of you did amazing work!

Color Me De-Stressed @ the Library

Come to the library during finals week and relieve your stress over finals! We have lots of crayons and coloring pages. We also have mints.  Research has shown that coloring can relieve stress and mint increases alertness and focus. Stop in before, between, and after your finals!

And remember to return your library books when you stop by!

Winners and What the Library Could Loan

Thanks for celebrating National Library Week with us. In our drawing, Deena Thao won the “Books, I need more Books” t-shirt, Joshua Xiong won the “library books” canvas bag, and Thi Ton won the bookends.

Here are the suggestions for things the library could loan. While we think it would be fun to lend puppies and kittens, the logistics are difficult. But we'll look into some of the other suggestions.

Last, but not least, people filled our book cart with post-it notes containing what they are currently reading.
