Cassandra's Library Round-Up


Weekly Round-Up: Week of May 10

Hello again from The Calhoun Library! Welcome to Week 6 of the Weekly Round-Up! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers and mother-figures out there! I am sorely missing my mother today. She lives in Kansas City; I had hoped to see her this summer, but that seems very unlikely now. Thankfully, modern technology will allow me to video chat with her this weekend.

Just a reminder that you can reach out to your librarians Cassandra and Beverly via email. Students can also connect with Cassandra on Google Hangouts; my "office hours" are currently 9:40-10:30am and 1:30-3pm.

Featured Books on Sora:

Every week, we will highlight a few new books on Sora, Calhoun’s eBook and audiobook lending platform. Check out this video tutorial on how to sign into your account. We’re adding new titles every week, but if you have a request, just email Cassandra.
