What’s new this Spring?

They Asked, We Delivered!

Best Sellers Collection

We added comfy new bean bag chairs in our Best Sellers section. The bean bag chairs were suggested by the students on the Student Library Wish List board displayed during the Fall semester. A couple of students who tested the chairs commented that the bean bag chairs will be their reason to come into the library to study!

Fun Ways to Go Green!

Fun Ways to Go Green bulletin board

The circulation staff created the “Fun Ways to Go Green!” display board in both of the library’s stairwells. Come by and check out the fun green tips suggested by the staff!

Course Reserves Services Available for Spring

Aloha Leeward CC Faculty!

With the new semester rapidly approaching, we’d like to remind you of the Library’s Course Reserve service! If you would like to place a Leeward CC Library item or a personal copy of your course’s required and/or supplemental text on Reserve for the Spring 2018 semester, you can fill out our easy online request form.  Our Course Reserve procedures are available if you would like more information about this service.

Course Reserves are an incredible benefit to offer to your students, as it makes texts readily available for them to borrow from the Library.  Items on Reserve can be checked out for either a 3-hour or 3-day loan period (which you can specify when you fill out the form) depending on the need, purpose, or anticipated demand for the item.

Students who utilize Course Reserves have always been very appreciative of the service, and find that it affords them the opportunity to further hone their study and research skills, improve their understanding of course topics, and provides access to titles that may not be available at the Bookstore or online.

We look forward to working with all of you in the coming semester!
