Eat & Drink Smart @ your library
Leeward Community College Library has a new food policy to protect our collections, computers and brand-new furniture. Individual-sized dry snacks, as well as covered drinks are welcome in most areas of the library. The Instruction and Reference Rooms are restricted food and drink zones. For more details, see our Food and Drink Policy.
Quiet study areas are designated on the Diamond Head side of the General Collection on the 3rd floor and in the Reference Room, 2nd floor. If your students need a place to focus on studying or completing an assignment these areas would be perfect for them. The library created these Quiet Study areas in response to feedback from our Spring survey.
Got art? Yes, we do!
Come and see new art from the Art in Public Spaces Program in the Library & Learning Common’s building, 2nd and 3rd floors. The program “cultivate(s) the public’s awareness, understanding and appreciation of visual arts in all media, styles and techniques” and makes artworks available for display in state public buildings.
We have sculptures from Esther Shimizu and Shigeru Miyamoto; abstract paintings from John Kjargaard, Zoltan Szabo, Glenn Yamanoha, and Barbara Okamoto to name just a few.
More art from the foundation will be coming to the library soon, including a large 3-D fiber art piece by Reiko Brandon called “Blooming in Shadow” which will be featured on the 3rd floor. For more information about the new art, please contact Eileen Sakamoto at 455-0678.
