Come to Carbs & Cram today for some tasty morsels and drinks today, starting at noon in the Library café space!

And while you’re at it, take our short food survey, based on your library spaces feedback earlier this semester.

There are paper copies near the food, or you can link to it here. 

Enjoy, and thanks again for your important feedback about our spaces, our annual library survey, and about food options.

We’ll provide summaries and other feedback next semester!

Your Library is Hiring!

Haggerty Library is looking for a Graduate Student Assistant for the spring semester! (And beyond, if you feel so inclined.)

You’d be working at our Learning Commons desk, helping people two evenings per week and one weekend day during the regular semester. You can do homework, and you won’t have to shush. Probably.

Head to My Mount Mary under the Finances tab for a detailed job posting, or inquire with library staff. Interviews may take place over the holiday break.

Thanks in advance for your interest!

Library Study Spaces

Image result for finals week

As your studying grows even busier nearing Finals, please note the variety of Haggerty Library study areas!

If you want or need to talk, choose from the group study rooms, the Learning Commons, or the library café space. If you need quiet, head up to the 2nd floor. And when you’re on the Quiet Floor, please walk to and from your study spaces quietly as well.

Find full details about all our study spaces right here.

As everybody deals with stress differently, please be considerate in your volume as you work or talk in the Learning Commons. And please note a new policy: take lengthy or loud phone calls in the café space!

And to reserve study rooms (highly recommended), please head to Spacefinder. It’s just a few steps. Please see library staff with questions!

Thanks for using your Haggerty Library, and may your hard work pay off!

Reasons: banned, challenged, and relocated because it was believed to encourage children to clear browser history and change their bodies using hormones, and for mentioning “dirty magazines,” describing male anatomy, “creating confusion,” and including a transgender character

(last year’s #5)

So, that wraps up our Banned Books Week 2019! Our Banned Books Week Guide will be available through Oct. 5.

Thanks for reading this week, and keep exploring and exercising your freedom to read!

And read a banned book. You likely already have.
