Amnesty Week at the Library!

Have library fines?  Fear not!  During the week of Exam Cram (December 4th – 10th), the GRCC Library will waive your fines upon request.  Just come to the Circulation desk sometime during the week, ask to have your fines forgiven, and voila–they’ll be gone!  *Please note that this courtesy only applies to fines for overdue items that have been returned.

Don’t forget–FREE refreshments will be provided all week long, as well as expanded tutoring services and extended hours on the weekend prior to exams.

See you soon!

Scout Report

Scout Report logo


Friday e-mails aren’t always welcome as we try to empty our inboxes before the weekend.  But one Friday e-mail that I look forward to receiving is the Scout Report.  This University of Wisconsin-Madison curated resource is “one of the Web’s oldest and most respected current awareness services. Published every Friday since 1994, it is received by more than 50,000 readers every week.”  It is a great way to stay informed about valuable online resources.  Sign up for the always interesting Scout Report.
