Cushing Library Hawk Squawk for June 23, 2010

by

MIDSUMMER HOURS BEGIN JULY 6

The Library will be closed Monday, July 5.

Beginning Tuesday, July 6, the Library’s hours for July and August (until Orientation) are:

12-5 Monday through Thursday

12-3 Friday

10-3 Saturday

We have very little traffic in the summer months, and keeping hours to a minimum for July and August enables us to save up our student labor funding to offer the best possible hours for fall and spring. We are always available for scheduled appointments–just phone or email.

LIBRARY PREPS FOR PHASE 2 UPGRADES

Note:  music scores, formerly in the AV room, are now shelved in Library of Congress order, handily available near the beginning of the M range at the south end of the lower level.

We have many miscellaneous bookcases coming available as we get ready to freshen up the downstairs study rooms with paint, carpeting, better lighting, and perhaps some furniture improvements. Stop by and check out these bookcases, as well as old AV equipment and other gems.

Note: thanks to our summer intern Emily Koster, the room that housed uncataloged children’s materials will also be available for study space. Emily is busy reviewing, classifying, and cataloging these books. While looking through old photo albums, we learned that this room was once the typing room!

AWAY, AWAY, TO ALA!

Two of us will be at the American Library Association annual conference in Washington, D.C. We will therefore be very minimally staffed between June 24 and June 30. If you want to see librarians in their native habitat, check out this video.
