The Curriculum Materials Library will be closing for renovations. The week of April 13th, we’ll be partially closed. We will have some access but will begin packing our collection. Beginning April 20th we will be completely closed. The CML should reopen in early June. For more information, please visit our LibGuide.
On Friday, February 13th, the Libraries Staff Association will be holding its annual Flower and Bake Sale! It will be from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Main and Science Libraries, and the MLC will hold its flower sale from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
All baked goods will be $1! Roses, carnations, and other foliage will be available so you can create your own bouquet! You can also pre-order a bouquet at http://www.libs.uga.edu/lsa/lsaflowers.html. We accept cash or checks. Come by and pick something up for your sweetheart…or yourself!
For the month of February, our book displays at Main, Science, and the Curriculum Materials Library feature books set in hot or cold climates/weather. The groundhog said six more weeks of winter – if that prospect delights you, pick up a book about Arctic exploration or murder most foul during a blizzard. If the prospect of more winter is more than you can take, pick up a book set in a jungle or a desert or on a beach.
The Main Library has mostly fiction with some history non-fiction and art books thrown in too. The Science Library has non-fiction from the fields of science and technology, as well as fiction from their Leisure Reading collection. The Curriculum Materials Library (on the second floor of the Aderhold education building) has a mix of adult fiction from Main, as well as Young Adult and Juvenile literature from its own collection.
The Main Library is also keeping track of which books get picked up to see if our readers are longing for the heat or relishing the cold. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@ugalibs) for updates on which way the gauge is leaning. We’ll also be rotating out books to keep the selection fresh all month long, so check the table more than once to see if something catches your eye.
For your convenience, once you’ve finished a book, all items can be returned to any of the three branches. Happy reading!
