The group study rooms and a number of study carrels in the Library Tower will soon become temporary offices for faculty and staff members who are being displaced by the renovation of Goodwyn Hall. Please pardon our progress as we move tables and chairs and take over some of these study spaces to turn them into offices. This week you will start to find the group study rooms and carrels locked as people start moving into their temporary spots.
If you need a quiet place to study, the third floor in the Government Documents Area will have some nice quiet spots around the edge of the room away from the computers and groups can meet on the first and second floors around the tables.
We do apologize for the inconvenience, but it is only temporary and the end result will be a wonderful new renovation of Goodwyn Hall!
This week is National Library Week, and the AUM Library is celebrating by offering those with library fines the chance to help the hungry. Come pay off your overdue fees April 11-16 by donating non-perishable food items, which the Library will give to the Montgomery Food Bank. Bring only items that are canned or boxed and not dented, opened or expiring soon. Donations will apply only to overdue fees and not lost item replacement or processing fees.
And the best part – you don’t have to owe any fees to donate! For more information, visit the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Library Tower.
The Library would also like to invite everyone to “Spring into Reading” at its National Library Week open house on Tuesday at 1 p.m. with refreshments in the lobby on the first floor. While you are there, hop on up to the second floor and check out the Learning Center’s new location, room 225.
The Library is incredibly grateful for the support from Coach Crotz, AUM Athletics, Moe’s Southwest Grill and all of our fans!
The following is an excerpt from an e-mail sent by AUM Athletic Director Steve Crotz.
This Wednesday we will have the last Moe’s Southwest Grill Day before the check presentation at the baseball game on April 23, 2011. We’re hoping that this can be our biggest day yet. Please take a few minutes to place this on your calendar and also to personally invite a friend or two to attend. All proceeds from this promotion go to assist the Friends of the Library Fund and Athletics.
