Heads up: library space usage census this week

We are conducting a space usage census this week. This means you may notice student employees with clipboards looking intently at your study space while you work in the library.

Don’t be alarmed! They are just counting how many people use the library each day and where they choose to work. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at libweb@wou.edu.

Getting Summit materials over the summer

Did you know that you can arrange to have your Summit requests delivered to another Summit library?

To do so, visit the circulation desk of the library where you’d like to pick up your Summit materials and ask to be “adopted” as a Summit Visiting Patron. Once you go through this process you can request Summit materials through either Hamersly or this other Summit library.

Help stop hunger in Oregon!

The 2017 Governor’s Food Drive is underway! You can help feed hungry Oregonians by:

–> Bidding on fabulous auction items such as gift cards for iTunes or Old Navy, a Thai massage gift certificate, various kitchen gadgets, outdoor equipment, books, beautiful scarves, even furniture. Check often as new items are being added all the time – and bid!

–> Buying snacks from the Info Desk in the library.

–> Contributing to the Penny Drive, also at the Info Desk.

–> Giving non-perishable food items – place in donation boxes throughout the library.

Every year, state institutions like WOU and other state universities participate in what amounts to the largest employer donation to local Oregon food banks all year, to help feed the hungry in our state. Thanks for your support!
