- Stop by the library and pick up a complimentary copy of Commonweal magazine. We’ve got the October 13th issue for you.
- Love nice bookmarks? Help yourself to a Theological Libraries Month bookmark. They’re on top of the Book Drop next to the Self-Check desk.
- Got something to share about library resources, services or space? There is a “Tell Us What You Think” easel up so that you can scribble up your comments. Library Staff will respond to ideas here on this blog.
Comment: “Is there some way we could make the library just a bit quieter for study? Other than that things are great.” Response: Yes, for a monastery library, it does get a bit noisy. For many in our community, the library is a place to connect and discover and learn with others, so there will be some conversations going on. The days of librarians shushing patrons are long gone. However, we understand why you might seek quiet to read and think and do your work. So we’re providing free disposable foam ear plugs, if you want to give them a try? There’s a basket of the little purple plugs on the New Books Shelf. They look like purple candy corn and are comfortable to wear.
