As the summer travel season kicks into high-gear, how about listening to an audio-book while you hit the roads? Whether it’s a drive to Niagara Falls or a ride to Cape Cod, you can pop a ‘Book on CD’ into your car’s player, and escape into a great story. We have access to thousands of titles – from memoirs to mysteries, best-sellers in fiction and non-fiction. Stop by the library, or give us a call at X 6125 – we will be happy to make suggestions and find the book you’re interested in!
JUST ARRIVED! Summer’s most anticipated new books and Best Sellers are all waiting for you at Krupp Library. “Into the Water” by Paula Hawkins, “Against all Odds” by Danielle Steel, and Lisa See’s “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” deserve a place in your Summer beach bag. Inspiring books such as Sheryl Sandberg’s “Option B…”, William McRaven’s “Make Your Bed”, and Ivanka Trump’s “Women Who Work” have become instant best-sellers on the non-fiction lists. So whether you’re headed to the boat, the beach or the backyard, stop by the library and pick up some good books to enjoy!
Great news for every parent this summer! We are pleased to announce that we have – or can probably have for you in a timely manner – the books on your child’s ‘summer reading list’ which has become mandatory for most schools (Grades 6 – 12). Rather than wait on an endless list for an available copy at your public library, or buy the book out-of-pocket, just order the book here by requesting it from our collection – or ordering it through ILL. Don’t forget, we have access to titles from libraries around the country – so try us this summer, and pick up all the books your child needs.
“ConGraduations!” to the Class of 2017! We wish you all the best, and send you forth with these inspiring words from author/humorist Tom Bodett:
“In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
Final exams are coming up – please do not wait to book your study rooms for the Library or the AIC ! Some days and time-slots are filling fast, so the longer you wait the less chance you have of reserving the day /time you need.
Reserving is easy for either building – click on the link on the right column of the Library homepage. Just remember – you need a minimum of 3 people, and you can reserve up to 3 hours per week / per student. We have supplies to lend out if you need them, and food & beverages are permitted…we just ask that you clean up after yourselves before the next study group arrives. Questions? Call us at 232-6125.
The close of the Spring Semester 2017 is fast upon us, with only a few weeks left before finals. At this time, we ask if you anticipate any need of resources via ILL Requests for final papers, presentations or exams (books, articles, DVDs, etc), please submit your requests ASAP. Keep in mind, it’s a busy time at all college libraries for ILL Requests, and some requests may take longer than usual to fill – but we always do our best to get you the items quickly. Should you have any questions regarding research materials you may need, contact the R & I desk at 232-6299. If you have any questions regarding ILL Requests, contact the ILL desk at 232-6125. We’re here to help!
