Library Director Brian Beecher points to the temporary LLC entrance to the south of the Main West entrance.
See – I told you there was a door here. Next week, we’ll have signs galore!
The Library & Learning Commons Lobby will be renovated during the first Summer session, with work starting Saturday, April 28th. That means the regular east and west 1st-floor lobby entrances to the LLC will be closed.
During the expected 6 weeks of renovation and remodeling, please enter the LLC using the (usually) emergency door on the west side of the building between the main west entrance and the bridge to the Main Parking Lot.
Watch for the signs (coming soon). We’re going to be here – please visit!

Poet David Cope.
Last night’s Post-Beat Poet David Cope Poetry Reading and Book Signing event in the LLC was enjoyed by all attendees! David shared a variety of poems written on life topics including: the Vietnam War; growing up and family life; love; sustaining friendships; being a janitor; the joy of choosing just the right word; and much more. Thanks to Maryann Lesert for her introduction of David’s career and works, and for sharing portions of her Rapidian review of his recently-published book, The Invisible Keys. Students, staff, faculty, Golden Raiders, and members of the community attended. We’ll post the streaming video as soon as it is closed-captioned. This event was sponsored by the Library & Learning Commons and the English Department.
Archival display of Cope’s Career was created by Mike Klawitter.
Poet Cope signed Invisible Keys for eager readers.
