December Library Events



University Library 

has series of festive

activities planned for December

to coincide with the holiday season.


Booksale:  Are you ready to start your holiday shopping for some great deals?  Starting on Thursday December 1- Friday 16th, the Library will be selling books for $.50 cents each or 3/$1.00.  Magazines will sell for $.10 each.

Craft/Coloring Activity:  On Thursday December 15th, the Library will have a candy cane craft activity and a book mark to color.  Hot apple cider will also be served.  Everyone is encouraged to attend.  This event will begin at 3:00pm and will continue while supplies last.

Holiday Contest:  The Library will offer a contest for students, staff, and faculty to guess the number of individually wrapped chocolates in a jar. The person that guesses the closest without going over wins the candy and a $15 gift card to Village Inn.  The contest runs from December 1-16th.

Food for Fines:  This is your chance to clear any outstanding fines that may appear on your account while also helping to feed the hungry.  For each overdue item, we will accept one non-perishable food item to waive your fine.  All collected canned food will be donated to the Bellevue Food Pantry.  This program is for materials that were either returned or renewed late.  We do not accept food for lost or damaged items and we ask that the donated food is unopened and not past the expiration date.  Sometimes students and staff ask, “Can I donate food even if I don’t have a fine?”  The answer is “Yes.”  We will gladly accept donated food. Thank you in advance for supporting this worthy cause.

Holiday Decorations:  During the entire month of December, all are welcome to stop by the Library to enjoy our holiday decorations.  New decorative items to see in the display case this year are “putz houses” made by the creative hands of the Library Staff.


Please remember that we will be closed Friday, December 23rd – Monday, December 26th
and will re-open on Tuesday, December 27th at 7:30 am.
