Moving back home


Well folks, it’s been fun, but we’re closing up shop here. Given the overhaul we’ve made to the library section of the BTS website, and some pretty big changes that will be happening to the catalog over the course of this school year, it looks like this blog won’t be needed any longer.

For changes in schedule, you can check the Hours page, or in case of snow, the BTS home page
For research tips and information on using our databases, you can check the How do I…? page

Although we don’t yet have a replacement way for keeping track of new books added to the library, that will be coming with the change in catalog systems.

We’ll leave the blog up through the end of 2014, at which point it will probably go away entirely.

grandfather clock (stevendepolo)Ready or not, here comes the new school year! Please note that the library’s hours will be different from past years: starting September 2, we’ll be open at 9 am every day of the week except Sunday. We’ll also be closing at 5 on Thursdays and 2 on Saturdays. So the schedule looks like this:

Monday, Tuesday: 9 am – 8 pm
Wednesday – Friday: 9 am – 5 pm
Saturday: 9 am – 2 pm
Sunday: Closed

We hope this proves easier to remember for everyone, and that the additional mornings will be helpful. We look forward to serving you in the year ahead!
