Hooley Bundschu Library has a blog! Hooray!!
As this is the very first post I’ll keep it simple and just update you on some of the goings on here at the library.
First and foremost, we are rapidly approaching the end of the Fall 2013 semester, which means FINALS. Students are flocking to our computers and study spaces to finish projects, perfect papers, and get in those last few minutes of studying. For any students or faculty who are looking for information and/or help–don’t be afraid to ask your friendly neighborhood librarians! We can be found wandering all over the library and are happy to help. You are also welcome to ask questions via Twitter (@hooleybundschu) or Facebook. Also, it can get fairly noisy in here with this many people working, so those of you hoping for a “silent” study space, I suggest you investigate our quiet study area toward the back of the library. We also have a few small study rooms, which are first come-first serve (sorry, no reservations).
In an attempt to make your last week before finals a little less stressful, a variety of campus groups will be hosting events this week in the library and around the Avila campus. If you are in need of some stress relief, check the schedule of events on our Facebook page.
We recently hosted the ‘Free LaMar’s Donuts and Coffee’ event at the library as a part of Avila’s “Stress Relief Week.” This year we were able to take advantage of a special ‘BOGO’ deal with LaMar’s and received 50 dozen (600) donuts. We started serving at 8:00 A.M. and were still going strong when the evening shift came in at 5:00 P.M. A Huge thanks to LaMar’s Donuts and Avila Student Life for making this event a huge success.
With the advent of “Stress Relief Week” and the fast approach of Finals Week, the library will have extended hours. Check the image below for daily hours. The library will be closed December 14th & 15th and will re-open on the 16th with abbreviated hours until the official Christmas Break begins on December 23rd. Check back for details.
Finally, we are looking for donations! Specifically, we are looking for TOYS. As a part of a campus wide Toys for Tots drive, Hooley Bundschu Library will be collecting new and unopened toys to be delivered to needy children for Christmas. If you are interested in donating there are two collection bins inside the library, near the circulation desk. The bins should be available through the end of the school year and you are welcome to donate any time the library is open!
I will leave you with those thoughts for now. Check back soon for a new post and GOOD LUCK to all students preparing for Finals!!
