The library is excited about our construction and expansion project that we are currently undergoing to improve resources for our students and increase student study space. During spring break the library will be open March 9-12, but only through the lower level emergency exit adjacent to the L building Main entrance. There will be a construction project throughout the top floor of the library during this time so we will need to close the main floor completely starting at 1pm on Friday March 6. The whole library will be closed March 7 & 8 and March 13-15 for this project.
From March 9-12 the library will be open from 8am -5pm each day, but we will have some service limitations.
The library will not be able to offer access to the following resources during the spring break holiday:
General Reserve collection items
After Class collection
Microscopes & Slides
DVDs on reserve
We will be providing for students, access to:
General library collection (lower level materials)
Electronic Database and resources through our library website
Update: The library system is back online. Thank you for your patience! remember: For research help, please contact the library’s reference desk 708-974-5234, email@example.com or Ask a Librarian page.

Our librarians helped support this project, and we are excited that it was such a success. Using Soliya, MVCC students held conversations with other students in Europe and the Middle East. It was a very cool use of technology. Check out the video:

Writing for a Change: James Baldwin and the 1960s featuring speical guest John D’Emilio
February 17, 12:30 pm – 1:45 pm, Oremus Theater, Building F
The 1960s are remembered as an era of popular activism, of people demonstrating and organizing for justice, equality, and peace. Writing was also a key way of making change, and James Baldwin, through his novels and his essays, was on the cutting edge in the 1960s, challenging injustice and inequality based on race and sexuality. This talk featuring the University of Illinois at Chicago scholar John D’Emilio will explore Baldwin’s life and work in this important era. This event is part of the One Book program on Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin.
We are excited about this week’s event. Please note that this will be held in Buidling M.

Useful information during the expansion:
–Library services will be available during the expansion.
–The expansion should be completed by the middle of June.
–The Library’s three study rooms will not be available during the expansion (because they are being demolished and rebuilt).
–We are expanding the study room space, adding open seating, and adding a multimedia lab for students.
–During spring break (March 9-12) library services will be moved the 1st (bottom floor) as the main floor (upstairs) is recarpeted and painted. The main floor (upstairs) will be back when classes resume. Library services will be available during spring break.
