Please Return Your Library Books

December 10th, 2012 by jimm wetherbee in Announcements

You’ve prepped; you’ve crammed; you finished that last paper; you are primed and ready for that last exam.  You don’t need that book you borrowed from the library anymore.  At one time it was your best and only friend, but you can move on now.  Before you do, however, please return the book to the library.   Your books are lonely.  They want to go back home to their shelves in the main stacks of the library and get reacquainted with their friends over Christmas.

If you  don’t return your books, they will let us know.  Bad things will happen.  You will charged to replace the books.  You won’t get your grades.  If you are a senior, you won’t graduate.  It will be an ugly blot on your permanent record

Seriously, the library needs the books back so that students in future years will have the opportunity you have had to learn, become more enlightened, or at least be able to finish that last term paper.

So please remember.  Books are due on or before December 18th.
