Tours of the H-L Library Sept. 11, 17 & 30

Where do I check out books? (Wait, where can I even FIND a book?)

Where can I find my course reserves? (What ARE course reserves anyway?)

Where are the Hubbard Stacks (and do they really have GLASS floors?)

Find out the answers to these questions and lots of others when you stop by for a 45-minute tour of the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library, led by one of your fellow students and designed especially for first-years on:

Thursday, Sept.11: 4:00 p.m.

Wednesday, Sept.17: 3:00 p.m.

Tuesday, Sept. 30: 7:00 p.m.

Tours begin in the H-L Library lobby.

If you can’t make any of these dates, please email your First Year Librarian.
