Where to find us....

We’re excited to welcome students and faculty back to campus! For the first few weeks of school we will be located in our old space on the first floor of the Smith Center. Most of our books are packed up but don’t let that stop you from requesting a book. We will attempt to locate it in our boxes, borrow it, or connect you with the ebook or audiobook. We are of course always available for book recommendations, research help, or just general questions. Stop by and say hi!

Summer Reading

Students and faculty will meet to discuss their Summer Reading books during Flex on Wednesday, September 9th. There will be ice cream as well as raffle prizes during the meetings. You can find the location of your meeting here: Discussion Locations and in OnCampus Resources.
