Fall 2013

Check out the changes

Books and movies will now check out to faculty and staff for one quarter instead of one year. Items must be returned to the library in order to be renewed. Two renewals are allowed, except for new books, which can be renewed one time. This will help us keep better track of inventory and that's a cost savings.


Read on for other changes that make the library a more welcoming place to study, learn, persist, and succeed!

Popular fiction

A very small collection of popular fiction is now in the library.


The collection is designed to support reluctant readers, engage ESL students, and make the library a place where students want to visit.
