Come on down to the 1st floor of the Burritt Library on Wednesdays for knitting, crocheting, and any other craftiness you would like to do. We will start at 1:30 and end at 2:30. If you don’t know how, we’re happy to help. If you have any questions, please email Sarah or Arianna.
FREE BOOKS! What could be better than that?
Looking for something to read? Do you have a great book that you want to pass around? Come to the 2nd floor of the Burritt Library and check out the new Bookcrossing area. Comfy seating and a relaxed atmosphere for browsing titles is provided, and if you find a book you’d like to read, go ahead and take it with you! And if you have a book you’d like to donate, go ahead and leave it for someone else.
Each book is tagged with a number so that you can track that books journey. Simply go to Bookcrossing.com and enter the number to see where each book has traveled.
The kindle e-readers are ready for check out! Each one comes loaded with a library of current, popular fiction and non-fiction as well as some classics. Current students, faculty and staff may borrow a kindle for 7 days and renew for an additional 7 days. More information about the Kindle loan program can be found at http://libguides.ccsu.edu/kindle. We hope you enjoy and take advantage of this new service!
