Post-Finals Library Hours

Open and Closed

Things are slowly winding down here on campus and we know it’s a relief when you finish that last final paper or exam. After final exams are done the library will be modifying our hours of operation.

From Monday, December 15 to Tuesday, December 23 library hours are as follows:

Monday – Friday: 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

The library will be CLOSED beginning on Wednesday, December 24. Library hours will resume on Monday, January 5.

We hope everyone has a wonderful break!

Ready for Finals?!

Study

It’s hard to believe it but Finals are underway here at SCC. We just wanted to remind you that the library is a great place to go to help keep you in the right frame of mind for studying or writing research papers.

Our computers are available on a first-come, first-served basis and if you find they’re full you always have the option of checking out a laptop at the circulation desk (just make sure you have your SCC ID).

The second floor of the library is our quiet study floor. If you need a quiet study space to work, the library stacks are the place to go. Just walk through the double doors at the top of the stairs and find a spot that speaks to you. Then hunker down and do what you need to do.

We also have study rooms available on the second floor of the library. Keys to the rooms are available at the circulation desk and they check out for 3 hours at a time.

Plus, we can’t forget the reference librarians that are at the Reference Desk! They’re available for help as long as the library’s open so feel free to stop in and ask questions face-to-face, call, or chat with a librarian if you need a little help.

Good luck with everything! The semester will be over before you know it :) Happy studying!

December Book Club – Saga #1!

Saga

Can you believe it’s already December?! We know people are preparing for finals and writing research papers, but if you’ve had a chance to read Saga, Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan (illustrated by Fiona Staples) you’ll want to stop by the Information Commons at 2:30 tomorrow (Wednesday, 12/3) for discussion on the book. Saga, Volume 1 is the Between the Covers book club’s final pick for the semester. This graphic novel is a unique reading experience and it has a devoted following.

Even if you haven’t had a chance to read it you should stop by and hang around for the conversation. We’ll have coffee and treats. Plus, you can always participate in book club next semester (dates and books to be announced soon!). And since we have Saga here at the library you can check it out to read some other time.

Hopefully you can make it for the book club discussion – it should be a fun and interesting conversation (as always!)!

Library Labor Day Hours

Labor Day

It’s Labor Day weekend and we know our students are PUMPED for the extra days off. For those of you who want to get ahead in your schoolwork during this time, just know that a number of the library’s resources are available to you electronically 24/7. You’ll just have to log in using your SCC ID with the letters SC at the end (ex. 0654321SC) and your last name.

With that in mind, the library will be CLOSED until Wednesday, September 3. We’ll re-open at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 3 with our regular fall hours.

Have a wonderful weekend!
