library resources

Here are a couple of library resources you may not be aware of:

Student Food Pantry

There is a food panty located in the Orange Room of the Main Library where students can grab some food to fuel up! No information is required of them, they can simply stop by and get what they need.

Family Study Room

Students who have children of their own or help take care of them should know that children are welcomed in the library. There are Family Study Kits available to check out for use in the library that kids can play with while their caretakers study.
