A very warm welcome to all of our new students! We hope that classes are off to a good start and that you are making yourself comfortable and getting into a good routine. The library can answer any questions you might still have so just stop by the desk and ask!

If orientation seems like a blur, here are some of the more salient points about the library:

  • You can check things out! Laptops, phone chargers, skulls, models, and more! Oh, and books of course.
  • Librarians are here to help! And each school has their own liaison librarian- do you know who your librarian is?
  • The library has Open Workshops throughout the school year so you can learn new skills.
  • The library also hosts fun events, just so you can have fun.
  • Printing is done by adding money (Jumbocash) to your student I.D. card. $0.10/page B&W, $0.15/page double-sided, and $0.30/page for color.
  • The IT desk can help with many tech issues you might have and can install software on your computer.
  • Ask away! That’s what we at the library service desk are here for.

We look forward to seeing you around the library!
