Service Updates

Due dates for borrowed items have been extended until September 30. Please don't return any library materials at this time. We'll waive any late fees when you return your items.

We're working closely with the university to determine when and how best to reopen our buildings and collections. Our top priority is the safety of our employees and patrons. Please continue to check back periodically for updates.
