The Library's New Look

The new tile floor in the Library circulation area. Fall semester classes resumed on Wednesday October 12th, and students returned to a brand new floor in the entrance to their Library.

New flooring @ Your Library

While Alexandria Campus students enjoyed a break from classes on October 10th and 11th, things were busy in the Library! The autumn non-instructional days provided an opportunity for a face-lift in the entry to the Library and Counseling area. Worn carpet was ripped up, the floor prepared, and new tile laid in the circulation area. Throughout the dirt, dust, oscillating fans, workmen coming and going, radios and cellphones crackling, and smells, the Library continued to offer research, circulation, and computer services. The Library maintained slightly abbreviated fall break hours (8.30am - 7.30pm) and library users cheerfully navigated a temporary new entrance, negotiated unfamiliar noise, dust and odors, and managed to adapt to slightly re-arranged service desks.
