Roller Derby in the Library

We got new computer chairs in the library! They are beneficial for students' postures and for conducting chair races after hours. They also saved one librarian's back from having to carry weeded older editions of super-heavy nurse anesthesia texts. Come and have a seat.

National Poetry Month

It's National Poetry Month, and TC Library is getting in on the action! Check out our April book display for an abundance of poetry.
Actually, in our whole print collection, I could only find eight books that feature and/or focus on poetry. (Not part of our academic offerings or collection development policy.) So - to make up for this outrageous hole in our collection, I wrote you a poem.

What does TC Library not have?
Books with poetry and rhyme!
Instead we own books on therapy 
and management and crime.  

So if you want a book of poems, 
your routine from us must vary. 
Order some through ILL, 
or visit your public library.

We also have a bunch of poetry books in our eBook database. POETRY SLAM STARTS NOW!!!
