Did you know that any overdue items on your account or any outstanding fines can prevent you from accessing your final grades this semester? Before you leave for winter vacation, take a moment and check your account. Return any items which are over-due (or will be due) while you’re away – including Athletics Collection books – and settle any fines on your account. This way, you will have no trouble getting your final grades.
As ‘finals’ is fast approaching (December 13 – 20) time is running out to order any books or articles you may need from outside libraries via Inter-Library Loan (ILL). Books can take anywhere from 3 -14 days to be received and processed (depending on where they are coming from in the USA). ILL articles usually process within 2 – 10 days, yet sometimes take longer. Don’t delay in ordering any items you may need before finals! Call us at 232-6125 for further help.
It’s not too early to start booking your study rooms in the Library for final exams (December 13 – 20). The earlier you book, the better choices of rooms and times available for your group. Just remember The Rule of 3: No less than 3 students for a reservation / No more than 3 hours per day / No more than 6 hours per week.

Two of the biggest Broadway sensations – ‘Dear Evan Hanson’ (Nov. 2016) and ‘Be More Chill’ (March 2019) – are now available at our Library. If you’ve seen the musical, you will want to read the book – and if you read the book, you’ll run to see the musical!
‘Dear Evan Hanson’ is penned by original playwrights Benj Pasek and Justin Pau, who transfer their Tony Award winning musical about the emotional ups and downs in families, high school and relationships into this new ‘must-read’ novel.
Ned Vizzini is the writer behind ‘Be More Chill’, which follows the high school days of self-described ‘dork’ Jeremy Heere who swallows “the squip” one day, which transforms Jeremy ‘from geek to the coolest guy in class’. The novel (written in 2004) has become a an off-Broadway musical sensation, and transfers to Broadway in March 2019. Sure to be a Tony winner in 2019!
