Amnesty Days Update – When all was said and done we forgave $329 in fines and donated a significant amount of food to the Student Food Bank. Thank you to all who participated in this semester’s Amnesty Days!

Help out your fellow students and save some $$$…

On Tuesday, November 23rd and Wednesday, November 24th, 2010 the Library will take up to $5.00 off your fines with a donation to the Student Food Bank.

Items in high demand include: powdered or canned milk; canned tuna, salmon or meat; canned fruits and vegetables; sugar, coffee, and tea; peanut butter; baby food and baby formula.  There is also a great need for toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, baby care items, toilet paper and feminine hygiene products.

New study space and new computers!

Apologies for the ongoing construction in the library this week, but we have something exciting coming on Friday:

We will be installing new high tables next to the windows!  A great space to study *and* enjoy some natural light.

There are also a few laptops available for use in the super silent study room now, keep that in mind when you need an ultra quiet environment and a computer.

Enjoy your reading day!

What the heck is COPPUL?

COPPUL stands for the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries.

Why should you care?

Now that MRU is a member of COPPUL, you can get a free card from the Circulation / Reserve desk that will allow you to borrow books from most of the university libraries in Western Canada.   This includes being able to borrow 50 books from the University of Calgary at any one time!

Please inquire at the Circulation / Reserve Desk for more information, or check out this link for the COPPUL website, which includes a listing of all the participating institutions.
