We’re moving

August 18, 2010 at 11:52 am | Posted in Library Business | Leave a comment

We’ve moved a number of NY materials (reporters, statutes, session laws, etc…) on the MAIN level around to make things a bit more accessible.  We also decided to move McKinney’s Form books from the UPPER level down to the MAIN level.

The US Code Annnotated was moved to the area formerly occupied by Shepards. 

We’ll keep you posted on any future moves!

As a courtesy, the library will email notice of impending book due date 3 days before actual due date.  We hope this will make it easier to remember due dates and avoid those fines!  Book renewals may be made in person or by phone (445-2340) during business hours.
