Welcome to International 'Do-You-Have-My-Textbook' Day! (Brought to you by phone, text message and even on occasion face-to-face.)

My first 'Do you have the textbook for my class?' question of the new school year! And yes, we have it -- in reserve.

Sorry, it doesn't matter whether you have a student i.d. or not, you can't 'rent' a book. (Psss. it's 'borrow').

Famous last words: Just download our App!

Had to bring my laptop with me to the library to download Win10 without the problems I was having at home -- like the internet connection giving out every 20 mins. Thank you AT&T :-(

Hey Google, they're called 'Summer Hours'. Please list (hopefully before Labor Day).

How do you know it's finals week? Nobody's run off for dinner. Place is full.

Two 6 hour shifts two days in a row (Sat. & Sun.) Kinda tough. Looking forward to a free day tomorrow.
