We'll have board games, puzzles, playdoh, and more set up to destress with. Come hang out with us and take a study break!

And as always, come stop by and chat with us at ANY TIME! We love interacting with students, whether it be for research, class, or just a friendly chat!

 

Welcome!

A Message from Your Library

Happy National Library Week Leopards! This week is very special to us here at the Schumann, as it allows us to learn more about the profession we love and share it with our community. Each day of National Library Week is designed to promote the governing principles of all libraries- open and equitable access to education and reliable resources. It also allows us to celebrate libraries as collaborative spaces to grow new ideas and gather as a community. Take a look around this resource guide and the Library space this week to see how you can participate and learn more about Libraries and what they have to offer!
