Recently the Library revised its Food and Drink policy to allow snack foods to be eaten in the building. The only exceptions are while visiting the Special Collections unit or while using materials from locked collections in the Youth Collection, Art and Music Collection, and maps collection.
Can you bring in that delectable steak for a late night protein boost? Probably not. But you can snack on some nuts and dried fruits instead.
On Saturday, January 8, we will be making some updates to the web server which runs the library's site. Brief outages of less than a minute may occur or the site may respond slower than usual. We appreciate your patience as we try to improve the performance of our site.
Rod Library now offers you quality Green Mountain Coffee and tea in individual K-Cups just perfect for brewing a 10 oz cup of hot joe. We have a lot of delicious flavors too! Each K-Cup is $1.00. Stop at the Multiservice Center on the first floor to purchase your K-Cup. You can use your own cup or one of ours. Enjoy!
Beginning at around 10:00 a.m. Monday Oct. 18th the Library will be offering free samples of Keurig coffee from our new coffee machine on the first floor of the library in the Newspaper Room. Upon entering the building go down the main stairs, turn left at the bottom and follow the wall around to the Newspaper Room.
Free samples of a variety of coffee flavors will be available until the supply is gone. After the free samples are gone you may purchase Keurig coffee K-Cups from the Multiservice Desk on the first floor for $1.00. You may use the cup supplied or your own cup.
Thursday, September 30th, UNI Physical Plant personnel will begin adding additional electrical outlets to the north end of the east wall on the first floor. Currently only one outlet is available along this portion of the wall. At the end of the project up to 11 outlets will be usable near the new bench furniture and a bit further south down the wall.
Physical Plant will also be adding power and hard-wired Web connections to the "space ship" study area in that same corner of the building. You'll be able to plug in your laptop for charging and connect directly to the web. Look for more information about our new "space ship" in an upcoming blog entry.
Because of the electrical work beginning Thursday there will be extra noise and a bit of dust in that corner of the first floor. If you need help identifying another place to study please see the smiling folks at the Circulation Desk by the entrance.
Thanks for your patience while we improve our building!
