"From Galesburg to Monmouth and then back - Monmouth to Galesburg
During the back and forth I am increasingly aware of the artistic changes in the stretch of land From Here To There:
Aware of the sometimes harsh, and sometimes subtle, impact of the changing seasons and weather
Aware of crop rotations and planting patterns
Spring fields – Harvest – and Till
Aware of the movement of cattle from one pasture to another – groups of cattle as they graze and the one individual laying at the top of the hill watching over the others
Aware of tall grass along the side of the road that becomes beautiful round sculpture placed systematically, yet effortlessly, along the road - and sometimes they linger for months, but the real beauties disappear before I go back that day
Aware that these changes are about processes and cycles that
significantly impact my comings and goings"
-Stacy Lotz, 2009

Library student assistants complete a variety of tasks working at the library. Students shelve books, shelf-read, and work at the library's Circulation Desk. Additional projects are assigned by different supervisors. All students are expected to work weekends on a rotating basis.
If you are new to campus, feel free to take any of the handouts located at the Reference and Circulation Desks. First year students will be visiting the library with their ILA classes over the next few weeks for more information.
