More collaborative space available
Due to feedback from students for more collaborative space, we are happy to announce that the Lois Martin Memorial Conference Room in the Todd Wehr Library will be available to students 24/7 when the room isn’t reserved. Room features include space for up to 20 people, a white board, and a large LCD monitor with an HDMI connection.
Between 5:00 pm – 7:30 am, the room is accessible with an MCW ID badge on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority should be given to groups of 5 or more. During public hours, badge access is not needed. Please be mindful of the room reservations posted on the digital sign near door.
We ask for your cooperation in ensuring that the room is kept in good condition and that food and garbage is properly disposed of. Also note that only MCW badge holders are allowed in the library during non-public hours.
We have implemented self-service checkout for physical library items. Non-refence items can be checked out at any time with a current library account and password.
Questions about your library account? Ask a librarian.
