Due to weather conditions and the cancellation of evening classes the library will be closing at 5pm today 1/16/18. The 24 hour spaces will remain available to currently enrolled students by card swipe.
If you are studying in the library after 10pm tonight, stop by the Reilly Learning Commons for free coffee and cookies, compliments of the Library. Good luck on your finals!
The Library Computer Lab (Rm.306) and an additional Group Study Room on the 4th Floor are now available for student use. Please note the guidelines posted in each room, and good luck preparing for your exams!
The 2017 Bike Scranton Season will end at the University this Friday November 3rd. Preliminary reports indicate a substantial increase in borrowing this year. We are happy to be participants in this green initiative. Plan to join us again next April!
Starting today students may borrow library laptops overnight and take them out of the library if desired. There was student interest in borrowing laptops to use in class or take back to their dorms, so the library worked with IT over the summer to make this possible. So students, stop by the Circulation Desk on the first floor to get more information or to borrow a laptop!
Due to construction, the main entrance to the library will be closed starting Wednesday July 5 for approximately three weeks. Please cut through (or go around) the DeNaples Center to get to the patio side of the library to enter.
The study room in the back corner of the library’s 4th floor, which is usually reserved for faculty, is now open for student use. This room is for group use and can not be reserved. Please follow the posted guidelines, and best of luck as you prepare for exams!
You may know that April is National Poetry Month, but did you know that Thursday April 27 is “Poem in Your Pocket” Day? People are encouraged to “celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day”. I am choosing to share here a poem by Contemporary Canadian Poet Sheniz Janmohamed called”The Road Ghazal”. Pick a poem to share tomorrow – either in person or at #pocketpoem.
Bike Scranton is back! For the 2017 season the library has 8 bikes of different sizes to lend to anyone age 18 or over. Bikes may be borrowed whenever the library is open, and all bikes must be returned before the library closes that same day. There is no charge for borrowing bikes. Stop by the Library Circulation Desk and borrow a bike today!
Over winter break a third reservable group study room was added on the second floor. Room 2C was created by removing several of the older microform reader/printers, and the entrance is on the De Naples side of the building. The room will accommodate 4 students. Just go to:
to reserve any group study room up to one week in advance. Welcome back!
