Meet me at the Library!

You will come to the library for help with homework and stay for so much more!  In addition to the thousands of books waiting for your discovery, millions more are available through the rapid LINK+ loan service. The latest issues of a variety of current interest magazines and newspapers as well as research journals are shelved in a comfortably furnished area on the main floor. Computers in the LICOL area have Microsoft Office installed. Nearby reference librarians are available to assist with assignments and projects. You will find a variety of spaces in the library: quiet areas, group study rooms, patio seating in a garden atrium, couches, comfy chairs, carrels, and tables.
