Own Your Zone during 24/5!

The Library is open 24/5, which means it can get pretty noisy pretty quickly!  That’s why we need your help to keep the Library comfortable for you and your peers during our extended hours. Use Own Your Zone” cards to self-advocate and reduce noise the library.own your zone

Own Your Zone cards serve as a non-confrontational way to ask your peers to respect the study zones. Library staff regularly enforce the noise policies, but we need the help of the entire campus community to keep the Library a calm, clean, peaceful, and respectful environment for everyone, especially during Finals Week.

Cards are located in plastic holders in the Main Stacks, 2nd Floor, near classroom 0014, and at the Circulation and Reference Desks.

Can’t find an Own Your Zone card?  You can also text a librarian at (914)873-1711.  Tell us your location, and a staff member will come to address the noise issue as soon as possible.  After Text Us hours, or in the event of a delayed reply, please tell a staff member at the Reference or Circulation desk.

To review the Library’s study zones rules and locations, please visit purchase.libguides.com/studyzones.

Best of luck with finals!

Spring Book Sale! Thurs. April 30th and Fri. May 1st, 10am-4pm

The Library invites you to our Spring Book Sale on Thursday April 30th and Friday May 1st 10am to 4pm!  In honor of the season, why not pick up some leisure reading?  A classic novel in paperback?  An art book?  Some light beach reading? Donations that the Library cannot use in our collections go in the book sale and get passed on to you for between $1 and $3 per book. We’re also selling vinyl for $1 each. Stop by the Library on your way to class or to lunch and browse our sale.

This year’s book sale was made possible by the many donations the Library received from faculty, staff, community members, and the Book Store. Thanks to the entire Purchase community for making this happen!

The book sale takes place between 10am and 4pm on Thursday and Friday and will be held on the plaza in front of the Library, weather permitting.  Rain location is inside the Library on the first floor.

Cheese Tasting tonight April 29th 5pm-6:30pm in 2012 Lounge

The Purchase Cheese Club and the Library once again bring you a night of gourmet cheese and pairings as part of Finals Countdown. Stop by the 2012 Lounge on Wednesday April 29th from 5pm to 6:30pm and sample a range of (free!) cheeses from brie to blue.  Learn how pairings like fruit, nuts, marmalade, and honey bring out the flavors of good cheese. Our cheese selection includes  foreign and domestic cheeses with both vegetarian-rennet and non-vegetarian options.  Last December, supplies ran out in 40 minutes, so we’ve stocked up on extra cheese this year. Just make sure you get there on time, while supplies last!

A special thank you to Cheese Club President Megan Wiggers for helping to organize this event!
