You won't be able to request Summit materials during the morning hours of Tuesday, Nov. 27th. The system is scheduled to be down from midnight to noon. You will still be able to search for books through the catalog, and you can request materials via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Once the system is back up, library staff will reroute to the Summit system any ILL requests that can be filled more quickly through our regional partner libraries.

Cooking with an International Flair

The International Taste of Culture on November 14th may inspire you to try new dishes or find out more about food from different cultures. O'Grady Library has books to fill your need on both counts! For cookbooks, try the Curriculum Room. There is "The multicultural cookbook for students" by Albyn and Webb or "Holidays of the world cookbook for students" by Webb. If you hunger for knowledge mixed with the recipes, "The anthropologists' cookbook" by Kuper and Koster in the Upper Level stacks promises a feast for both taste buds and your mind. One of my all time favorite books on food is also in the stacks at O'Grady, "The art of eating" by MFK Fisher. So head on over to the library and get those gastric juices flowing!

Library is closed November 12th

The O'Grady Library will be closed Monday, November 12th for Saint Martin's Day. Saint Martin of Tours is the patron saint of Saint Martin's University, most known for cutting his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm. His actions reflect the Benedictine tradition of hospitality.
