Our library has been selected as the recipient of this year's ACRL Excellence in Academic Libraries Award in the College Library category. We were selected in part because of our "nontraditional approach to instruction and positive student-driven environment." We're very excited and honored to receive this award and it's a testament to all the dedication, creativity, and fun that our team brings to the library.
