With the semester ending, the library will be switching to winter break hours.
Monday, December 14 – Friday, December 18
During this week, library building services will include Grab-and-Go only from 12pm-4pm Monday through Friday. If you need to print or use a computer, please visit the UHB 200 computer lab.
After Friday, December 18
After December 18, the library building, Grab-and-Go, I-Share and InterLibrary Loan services will be closed through the end of the year. During this time, online assistance will still be available. Visit our website for chat assistance, or check our FAQ page for often asked questions. And as always, library databases are available 24/7.
We anticipate that I-Share and InterLibrary Loan request services will begin on January 11th and Grab-and-Go services will start again on January 13th. These plans are subject to change due to delivery services and public health and university guidelines.

We hope that you will take some time to relax this Thanksgiving holiday. Maybe you’re going to whip up your famous butternut squash soup with the help of the immersion blender from our Library of Things. Perhaps you’re going to spend many, many hours melting into the couch while watching movies and eating candy from our Binge Kits. Whichever way you choose to spend your time this Thanksgiving Holiday Recess, we hope you enjoy.
Labor Day Weekend Movie Special
After the excitement of the first week of classes, the long Labor Day weekend is a great time to rest and enjoy some downtime. There’s no better way to do that then with some friends, some movies, and some snacks and we’re here to help you host that much needed movie night. During the Labor Day weekend (Friday Sept. 1 – Sunday Sept. 3), if you come to the library and check out 3 DVDs from our Feature Film Collection, we’ll give you a bag of microwavable popcorn and candy. With the variety of our film collection, there’s something for every body from new releases to old favorites.
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
