It’s almost time for Winter Break! Whether you have lots of plans or are just getting ready for a quiet couple of weeks before the beginning of 2016, here are some tips from Holman Library to help start your holiday off right:
First things first! - You’ll want to finish off your Finals in style! Holman Library will be open for “extended hours” through Weds. 12/9: 7 am - midnight. The rest of the week:
- Thursday, 12/10 - 7 am - 10 pm
- Friday, 12/11 - 7 am - 6 pm
The library will have all of its normal services available, so you’ll have plenty of space to come in and prepare for a successful finals run! Keep in mind that if you need a quiet place to study, there are silent study areas on the first floor of the library and on the second floor in classrooms HL 213 & 217. Group study rooms are also available, and fill up on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Home for the Holidays - Do you want to check out items to read or use over the Winter Break from the library? You can!
If you check out an item from Holman Library this week and let the Circulation Desk (the place where you check out the book or video) know you would like to keep the item over the break, the due date will be the start of Winter Quarter, Monday, January 4th!
Why would you want to do this? You could get a head start on your winter subjects if you were very studious, or maybe pick up one of those enticing reads from the New Books Shelf that you’ve had your eye on for a while but no time to read…
Keeping Your Cool Over Break - If you have items from the library that didn’t quite get returned before the end of finals week, Holman Library will be closed for the break, but you’re not out of luck! The library has a “drop box” on the west wall near the south entrance to the building (this is the entrance across from the RLC building) that can be used to return items when the library is closed.
Have a Happy Winter Break, everyone, and see you in January!
