Video Being Filmed at Burritt Library on 8/25

Hello Everyone!

I’m very excited to announce that CCSU Media Center will be filming a video to help students find their way around the Burritt Library. ( It will have a ghost/horror type theme). The filming will take place on Monday, August 25 from 12:00 pm – 4:45 pm.  Please be advised that some areas in the library may be closed off for short periods of time. Some patron computers may not be available, and lights may be turned off from time to time.  Also if you happen to be using the library that day and need to be near the filming, please keep the noise down. I’m sorry– I don’t mean to be one of those librarians that says “ssshhh”, but in this case it’s needed.  If you have any questions, please contact me, Susan Slaga at 832-2095 or slagas@ccsu.edu.  Thank you in advance.
