Welcome Back Toreros!

Welcome back Toreros!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s! As we get ready to begin the spring semester we would like to update you on some changes and continuing programs at the library.

The first ever Copley Library Personnel all-day retreat took place on 1/8 at the Dana Hotel. A beautiful setting for this first retreat of many to come. The theme of the day was Student Success. Special speakers were Raymund (Ray) Pun from CSU Fresno and Lee Van Orsdel, retired Dean of the Library at Grand Valley State University.

This winter session we also welcomed two new librarians! Millie Fullmer is our new Acquisitions and Cataloguing Librarian. Millie is in charge of making sure 1000s of books are ordered and properly “tagged” so you can find them in our catalog! Catherine Paolillo (not pictured, but will be in an upcoming blog) is our new Visiting Evening Services Librarian. Catherine will be here to help you after hours be it research assistance or finding out what happened to the book you put in a request for!

We are happy to report that the successful AS Textbook program will continue and be ready at the start of the spring semester!

Finally, a friendly reminder to everyone that the library is open from 8 am to 5 pm Wednesday 1/24 through Friday 1/26 and CLOSED this weekend  1/27-28. Regular semester hours start on Monday 1/29 at 7 am.

We’ll also have special hours on Thursday, 2/1 for the All Faiths’ Service. The library hours will be 7 am to 11:50 am and 1:40 pm to 2 am.

We wish you the best in 2018!
