As your studying grows busier, please note the variety of Haggerty Library study areas. If you need or want to talk, choose from study rooms, the Learning Commons, or the library café space. If you need or want quiet, head up to the 2nd floor.

Learn more about all our study spaces right here. And to reserve study rooms (highly recommended as the semester moves along), please head to Spacefinder. Please see library staff with any questions!

And there’s a million things in his papers at the Library of Congress. Okay, really only thousands, but 880 are now on display online!

See his letters, thoughts, ideas, and penmanship!

Very cool collection put together by very cool librarians!

Yes, next Sunday is Mother’s Day and since you’re busy with Finals Week, Haggerty Library wanted to send along some inspiration, and to help celebrate the day. Now you can at least send a lovely poem!

The Academy of American Poets produced this Mother’s Day list, with poems and essays about moms. Enjoy!

Wear Jeans With a Purpose

Today is Denim Day at MMU and across campuses (and plenty of other places) and across the globe. It is in its 18th year, and is, sadly, still necessary.

From the official Denim Day site, find the day’s origins here.

The Twitter hashtag is here.

And Milwaukee activity is here.

Stand up to sexual violence on this Denim Day and every day!

National Library Week

Also…last week was National Library Week! We kind of forgot about that. Silly us.

So, we humbly present Book Riot’s list of 10 Books for Library Lovers.

And plug once again our Haiku Contest, running through the end of April.

Listen Up!

We get asked about audio books from time to time at Haggerty Library. We don’t purchase them, but they can be requested in our WorldCat Discovery.

In addition to 11 free audio book sites, we also wanted to re-highlight our “small smattering of podcasts” in Haggerty Help Guides. Mostly related to MMU majors, but plenty of fun ones!

Happy listening!
