If you have any outstanding items on your account – from books to phone chargers to dry erase markers – you will be “billed and blocked” from getting your actual diploma if you’re a graduate and/or your final grades for the semester. DO NOT WAIT until May 17 – May 19 to clear this up, as the closer to Graduation / end of the semester the longer it will take to go through all proper channels to take the block off. It won’t be an immediate remedy, so PLEASE check your bookbags, dorm rooms, cars, etc and bring everything back to the library ASAP. Clear your account today!
Exam week is always the busiest week for our Library Study Rooms, and many patrons have them reserved in advance. If you go into a study room which appears to be empty, and you did not reserve that room, please remember a study group may show up and ask you to leave as they have the room reserved – and you must cooperate and find another place to study. We thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter!
FYI: You may want to book your Study Room in the Library NOW, before all the rooms and most popular times are taken for Exam weeks. It’s easy to do – you can reserve on the iPad in the Library near the Circ Desk, or do it on your own computer – just check out the Study Room Reservations link on the front of the library homepage and follow the EZ directions. Just remember the Rule of “3” – at least 3 people need to be in your study group to reserve a room! White Boards and other amenities are available in most rooms.
We have it…the first Oprah’s Book Club choice for 2018: AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE by award winning author Tayari Jones. What made Oprah want to share this novel with her Book Club members? Says Oprah, “After the first few chapters, as I got to know Roy and Celestial and Andre, I forgot they were fictional characters. I found myself in that zone readers yearn for: I wanted to cancel all my plans and curl up with my new friends. ” No doubt, a book you won’t want to put down this Spring season!
