Feedback Friday: Change is good.

iced_teaIf you could change one thing about Falvey Library, what would you change? Over the years we’ve added a coffee shop, started a laptop loan program, and opened a 24-hour lounge. What else can we do to improve the library?

Feedback Friday: Have you seen any good movies lately?

New movies are coming out all the time, many of which are based on books (Coraline, Angels & Demons, and Slumdog Millionaire). Have you seen any good movies lately? Did you read the book first? How do they compare?

We have DVD titles such as China Blue and Thirst and book titles such as Brewing Justice and Organic, Inc . What are you doing to make the world a “greener” place?

 Clock

Did you know the library lounge is open 24 hours a day? Your Wildcard gives you access to the lounge after the main library closes. Security cameras are linked directly to Public Safety, which makes it a safe place to study late. What is your favorite time to study?
