The Hallmanac is Awesome!

Hooray for The Hallmanac and a recent article by Meghan Kelley who wrote, “While students are working in the Library, we can have access to the numerous resources the library has to offer, including course textbooks, computers, light, and a lot of space to do work.” Thanks, Meghan! How do you like to use the library?

Keep the Toiletries Flowing In!

We’re off to a great start with our CSAB Toiletry Drive here at the library.  The toiletries we’re collecting for the display cases in the hallway are going to support Rosie’s Place, a women’s shelter founded to provide care and resources for homeless and poor women.  In this school-wide drive, the different classes and faculty teams are competing to see who is the most charitable and giving.  Look at the list below to see what you can do to help out Rosie’s Place!
