Hot Pepper Challenge!

Not so long ago, one day

A student came my way.


He sought some knowledge on plants to grow,

So I showed him some books & where to go.


We spoke about my garden, the peppers I grow for chili.

Immediately, he thought a challenge that was kind of eerie...

Hot Pepper Challenge

Oct. 25-29, 2021 from 8:30am-3:30pm daily in the library!

We're hosting a condensed book fair! It is known as a tabletop fair, which a smaller collection of books rather than the big book-fair cases pre-pandemic that you're used to seeing. Most of the shopping can be done online via a virtual fair and wallet. Additionally, there will be some items here on campus for purchase, but it will be limited due to covid-19 restrictions & past fair sales. We encourage you to shop online with delivery straight to your home. Last but not least, start saving up your allowances and loose change! We look forward to see you in the library!

Library will be CLOSED in the morning!
