Reference & Oversize Collections Swapped Locations

Over the summer, the Hewes Library staff completed an extensive evaluation of the library's Reference collection.  The project involved updating many older materials and moving some items from the Reference to the Circulating collection to increase circulation of materials. 

To facilitate the growth in the Oversize collection, the Reference collection and the Oversize collection swapped physical locations.  Reference is now located on the east side of the library's main floor and Oversize is now housed on the old Reference shelves in the middle of the library's main floor.
