Welcome Freshman and returning students! The library is open 7 days a week and we’re always here to help. Check out our Ask-Us services and learn how you can virtually chat with a librarian. You can also find our chat widget in any of your course Moodle pages in the right hand column. The printers are NEW so just ask if you need assistance with printing, copying, or scanning. Web Print is up and running smoothly, enabling you to print wirelessly from your laptops or tablets.
As part of our Techno-boost efforts the library now has new iPads, tablets, and headphones for you to checkout. Those of you who remember the old catalog will certainly agree the NEW catalog is far superior and much easier on the eye. NEW at the library allows you to view all the NEW books and subscribe to the RSS feeds of your favorite subjects.
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget to LIKE our Facebook page to stay up-to-date with all the latest library happenings!

Ahhhhh, summer reading! Don’t know about you, but I simply cannot turn down a trashy (auto)biography or coming-of-age novel during this sun-drenched period of bliss! We will be sharing our summer reads here and hope you will join the conversation and share your summer picks with us as well.
Kathy F. kicks off this new feature with her recently finished read of Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi, in which she describes it as “one of the strangest books I’ve ever read. Fascinating because it morphs as you read it (as do the characters themselves).”
Well, I’m intrigued! Kathy used Link+ to borrow this interesting read from one of our lending libraries. Feel free to use this service for any book you may be searching for.

The American Library Association held its annual conference and exhibition at the Anaheim Convention Center over the past weekend. ALA reported a total of 14,640 attendees with 5,381 exhibitors showcasing their products and services. Library professionals, administrators, staff, and students gathered from all over the world to attend programs and poster sessions, visit the booths, meet new library folks and visit with old acquaintances.
The Wardman Library director, librarians, and instructional media designer joined in the fun as well. There were tons of freebies, interactive demos, games, prizes, and raffles to partake in. Author signings and notable speakers always draw big crowds with names like George R.R. Martin, JR Martinez, Sapphire, Jodi Picoult, Dan Rather, John Irving, and Henry Winkler, pictured here with our very own Lauren Poelvoorde.

“One of my favorite movies is Interview with the Vampire. I personally really like this movie. A lot of people who have read the book (which I am currently reading) and seen the film believe that the book is way better which is common with most film adaptions. So far from what I’ve read, the movie does not do Anne Rice’s strong attention to detail much justice. But if you don’t like reading much and looking for a great movie give it a watch.”
Thanks Shavontae, we couldn’t agree more. Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater, and Brad Pitt….HELLO!
