Happy Cinco de May and End of the Semester!


Today is the 152nd Anniversary of Cinco de Mayo, when the Mexican Army defeated invading French forces at the Battle of Puebla. Turns out the whole story is a cautionary story about taking on debt. In related news, today is the last day of the Spring 2014 semester!

Tomorrow the library switches to our May summer hours (until Memorial Day):
Monday – Friday: 9am to 7pm
Sat/Sun: CLOSED
