Library Hours

March 16 - 20 - Campus will be in Extended Spring Break. Library hours will be 8 am - 5 pm 

March 21 - 22 - The library will be closed

Campus will be opened in limited capacity with all coursework moving online until at least April 3rd. Library hours will be established when campus soft-opens and those hours will be posted here when that information is decided. This is subject to change


Library Policies

Overdue Items: We are currently working on a way to make sure that your checked out items will be taken care of. If due dates are during this time span or you are off campus during this time, do not worry! we are suspending standard check-out policies during this time, knowing you can't get these materials back to us.

Interlibrary Loan: Requests for physical items (Books, DVDs, etc) are suspended until further notice. Interlibrary loan request for digital media will still be fulfilled to the best of our ability in a timely fashion, as many other libraries have also changed or canceled their ILL services, so bear with us.


Accessing Free Books

The Internet Archive is making available a large collection of e-books available for free until June 30 or the pandemic crisis ends. The collection is called the National Emergency Library, and includes titles as recent as 2019. Textbooks are not likely to be there, but if you are looking for a specific book to read for class (or just a brain break), it is worth searching their site. They might have it!
