The library strives to help students through this time of year, a time when studying and papers keeps everyone up late into the night trying to finish out the school year. Starting Tuesday December 8th, the library will extend its hours. During these hours please feel free to utilize the library not only as a quiet study space but also for its resources and reference assistance. We are here to help you! Here are the exam hours:

In addition to our collections of regular circulating books and multimedia materials, Kelly Library also has a government documents collection (located on the ground floor), and is a Federal Depository Library. The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was established by Congress to ensure that the American public has access to its Government's information. Since 1813, depository libraries have safeguarded the public's right to know by collecting, organizing, maintaining, preserving, and assisting users with information from the Federal Government. The FDLP provides Government information at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country and territories. These depository libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to Government information in an impartial environment with professional assistance.

The month of November has become increasingly known as No-Shave November, or Movember. Perhaps you thought you were just joining in on a catchy, play on alliteration, trend to keep warmer or save yourself 10 minutes, but believe it or not No-Shave November has become attached to raising awareness for a very important cause! Kissing razors goodbye, men (and even women) take the month off from shaving to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. So how does not shaving help cancer research and education? According to no-shave.org the concept “of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing hair, which many cancer patients lose;” the money that normally would be spent on shaving and grooming expenses should be donated to programs to support cancer prevention, research and education.

Library 101: Halloween

Oct 21, 2015

Halloween is right around the corner! When we were children this meant that last minute excitement of putting together our Halloween costumes and scoping out the best route to get all the good candy. As adults it has come to mean something different; while some still dress up, and most still pig out on chocolate, adults usually celebrate the scary aspects of the holiday. The end of October is often filled with scary stories, haunted attractions, and horror movie marathons. This is where the library can assist you in putting fright into your nights. The library has a ton of scary movies in their DVD collection but here are some classic Halloween favorites:

In recent years characters that originated in comic books have had great success in both feature films and television. This shows no signs of slowing down with plenty of comic related properties on their way in the next year. Many of these characters have a long history, some dating back to as early as the 1930s. A new reader looking for a starting point for these characters can be intimidated by decades of backstory. A few years ago Marvel began a series of Season One graphic novels which offer modern retellings of these superhero origin stories and offer a fresh starting point for new readers. Kelly Library now has a selection of Season One collections available for checkout in our Graphic Novel section on the main floor of the library.

We have been enjoying some glorious weather recently, days warm enough for sandals and shorts and nights cool enough to snuggle under a blanket. But with the arrival of the autumnal equinox all this good weather will slowly fade away. This year the autumnal equinox occurred on September 23rd at 4:31 AM (ET) according to the online Old Farmer’s Almanac. The word “equinox” derives from the Latin, meaning equal night. As the sun crosses the equator day and night are equal for everyone in the world. Because of the slight wobbling of the earth as it rotates around the sun, the exact timing of the equinox varies slightly from year to year.
