November 2023

We hope everyone made it through midterms smoothly and is heading into the second half of the semester ready for a strong finish. In this month's newsletter, we're focusing on programming and resources that celebrate American Indian Heritage Month. Stop by and visit us on the 5th floor. The Library offers services and resources for all of the HWC community including research assistance, access to course textbooks, books for research or for leisure reading, a quiet space to study, curriculum support, and much more. Our Fall 2023 hours of operation are Monday - Thursday from 8AM to 8PM and Friday from 8AM to 4PM.

Please note that the library will be closed on Friday, November 10th in observance of Veterans' Day.
