Mantor Monday

The 2011-12 academic year is almost here...and we're ready! We've been busy updating computers, setting up new equipment, and welcoming new staff. Tomorrow, Tuesday the 23rd, the library will be closed for the day. Library staff is flying the coop for an all day retreat: food, fun, and team-building at Pineland Farms.

Next week, the year kicks off at Mantor with our Orientation activity for incoming new students on Monday, August 29. We piloted "The Mantor Maze" - a treasure hunt that has students learning about the library's resources as they travel our three floors, mezzanine, and basement in search of clues - back in June with Summer Experience students, and it was a big hit. We've tweaked it a little bit, based on feedback from the trial run, and we're excited to see if the changes make the Mantor Maze experience even more fun for all.

The library has been running on our summer hours schedule, but will resume "regular" hours on August 31. Those hours are:
Monday - Thursday 7:45 am to 11:00 pm
Friday - 7:45 am to 5:00 pm
Saturday - 9:00 am to 5 pm
Sunday - 11:00 am to 11:00 pm
