Library Week

April 4th-8th is National Library Week. The library will be celebrating by having a “pop-up library” cart in different locations on campus each day. The first two students to find us may receive a prize. On Friday, students who visit the library can enjoy a donut and coffee as they study in the library space.

Easter Adjusted Hours

The library will be closed for Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. The library will be open for regular hours before and after these days. Please see our Lent LibGuide for resources for Easter.
