New Charging Stations


We have installed several new mobile device charging stations throughout the library. The charging stations are located on the first floor in the information commons, in the Baxter Room on the second floor near Starbucks and in the Pilkington Room on the second floor.

Brighter Lights


Over the years we have been working hard to change out older lighting installations in the library in order to provide well lighted workspaces. This summer we added enhanced lighting to a few areas of the library. Let us know what you think. Is a favorite study area still to dark? Let us know and we will see what we can do.

new scanner interface

New High Tech Scanner


We have a great new scanner for you close to the reference desk area. This scanner creates high quality scans which you can save to your smartphone, send to email, drop onto your USB stick or upload to your Google Drive account. You can also print our the scans to either or of our B/W or Color Printer. Whatevery you prefer, we've just made scanning easier for you.

New iMacs


Are you a Mac user? We have added several new iMacs in the Baxter room for a total of eight 21" and four 27" iMacs. These machines are loaded with productivity software. Do you need to use some type of software not available on the Macs? Let a staff librarian know and we will see what we can do.
