Library News – Abridged

  • The IT Helpdesk is now located on the First floor of Perkins Library.

  • Please join the Hastings College Perkins Library Facebook group page to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening at Perkins Library. Visit often to stay up to date on library hours and events and to connect with your campus library community.

  • The coffee’s always on in our lounge area…and it’s free! Visit early and often to enjoy our “caffeination station,” complete with other hot drinks and a filtered water refill station, during all our open hours.

  • Our game collection is located in the coffee area, where a traditional puzzle is always in progress. Play a game in the library or check them out!
  • While the weather is decent, please enjoy our new Bronco-colored Adirondack patio furniture. Thank you to the 2018-19 Student Association Cabinet for donating this comfy furniture to us.
