New books of interest

Have you thought about saving energy?

Browsing the 2nd Floor new book shelves, I found books about automobile design, fossil fuels and the Historical Guides to Controversial Issues in America:  Alternative Energy.  If you find something you’re interested in reading, just check it out.

The End is Near

It’s the week before finals and all through the library
students are scrambling for a computer or a quiet place to study.
Students are stressed, tempers are short, and its late afternoon with no latte around
Tension is high because the essay is due and it must sound profound

Okay, so it’s awful poetry but it does convey the message that the library changes at this time of the semester. Be considerate!

Keep the noise down. The music leaking from your headphones may not be relaxing to those around you. I’m glad Emily and Brandon are back together, but a student needs to study so please take your cell phone call to a designated area.

Computers are needed for academic work. You may find it relaxing to surf the Net and check Facebook updates but it is stressing out the student who needs a computer to complete an assignment. Keep the entertainment breaks short.

One last thing – good luck on your finals!
