Closed for Labor Day

Labor Movement | Electron Pencil

The library will be closed along with the rest of the college on Monday, September 3 to celebrate Labor Day. Normal hours resume on Tuesday.

Labor Day is a holiday held the first Monday in September to commemorate the achievements of American workers. It is also celebrated in Canada, though workers in many other nations prefer May Day. Though it is now an established fixture on the North American calendar, the first workers’ holiday was born out of struggle and defiance. Parades and rallies were a staple of nineteenth-century working-class protests, and Labor Day emerged from those patterns.

Easybib EDU going away

All student, faculty and staff Easybib EDU accounts will be deleted by the vendor in August. If you have files you want to save, you will have to save them somewhere else before that. You can create a new account in Easybib, but it will only provide MLA citations unless you pay for an upgrade. Please contact someone in the library if you need help or aren’t sure what to do.

The Big Read

Stop by the library to pick up a free copy of the Big Read’s book Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine. There will be many events in the community and at the college about this book, so please join us in this important conversation.
