Main Floor Collections Moving Around

Over the Winter Break, a few collections on the main floor have shifted locations.  The DVD Collection now faces the west side and the viewing rooms.

The VHS collection and the Newspapers have moved to the East side of the shelving and are now facing the Reference Collection.

As a result, we have more space for New Books and the ScotsRead Collection.  The New Books will be closer to the Einstein Brothers Coffee Shop and face the Scots Popular Magazine Collection. 

The ScotsRead Books Collection will now occupy the entire front shelving area - allowing more browsing for the titles.  If you have suggestions for the ScotsRead Collection, please stop by the Reference Desk to let us know titles or authors of interest.  If you have questions about a collection, please talk to a library staff member.
