Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library serves the research needs of our students, faculty, staff and community with both scholarly print resources and state-of-the-art technology. The library is a user-friendly and student-focused facility featuring group study rooms, quiet areas, comfortable and traditional seating, beautiful views, natural lighting, public access computers and plenty of study tables. The library materials, technology and staff play a critical role in the college learning experience.

Librarians engage students in a friendly and comfortable manner making learning interesting, exciting, rewarding and fun. We provide access to credible, reliable and up-to-date resources. We work hard to make the library a welcoming and pleasant place to work, relax, read and study. It is a place for reflection, meditation, communication, debate and collegiate conversation. It is our mission to teach skills that will assist everyone in the pursuit of knowledge and life-long learning.

Reserve Collection

This collection, located behind the Circulation Desk, includes books, articles, and/or audio and videotapes for short-term reading or viewing as assigned by faculty. Since many students need to access a limited number of copies or materials, most checkout periods are for 2 hours. Overdue fines for reserve materials are $.25 per hour.


The circulation period for books is three weeks. All other materials are three days. Fines for overdue reserve items are $1 per day. Fines for overdue books, CDs, etc., are assessed at $.25 per day per item. Renewals are generally permitted and encouraged as necessary.


We do have a limited number of laptops that circulate for 3 days and are due back by 9am the day it's due. The fine is $5 per day if not returned by 9am and each day thereafter.
