Online Tour of the Library
Main Book Collection: Most of our circulating books (the books that you can check out) are located on third floor. This collection uses the Library of Congress Classification system. Books that have call numbers beginning with A-H are on the north side and books with call numbers from J-Z are on the south side. You can find all the materials we own in the library and online with Central Search.
