Welcome/back from Haggerty Library! We hope you had a nice summer. Library staff are always ready to help with your assignments, papers, and projects. Or just to check out cool stuff.

In your library you can, among other things:

  • Check out books, DVDs, laptops, and iPads
  • Use a Study Room
  • Print in color
  • Create your own group study spaces
  • Study on the Quiet Floor (the 2nd floor)

What’s new (some based on your spaces feedback from the spring!):

  • More power! We added power strips with plugs and USB and lamps (some with USB) on both floors (but more on the 2nd floor). More to come in the spring semester!
  • Two new, more-private study spots on the 2nd floor.
  • New DVDs and books added

Stop on by! And we’re always open online!

And please watch for more ways to add our voice to our spaces feedback, part 2!

Celebrating Earth Day

As we celebrate this lovely Earth Day, in addition to reading about and advocating against climate change (today and daily), let’s also acknowledge businesses that are doing just that, among many other good deeds.

Businesses, both large and small, are all around us and online, and it’s good to know that so many actively care about more than their bottom line.

Learn out about certified B Corporations here, and then go read and share some poetry. It’s still National Poetry Month, too!
