You will find the TLC Collection safe and sound in the Faculty Multiuse Room, a space that was developed last year to support faculty work of every stripe--project collaboration, podcast development, committee meetings, presentations, technology skills development, independent research, and, of course, the act of reading.  [Read more.]
The LLC Book Club Re-Brands
and (Finally) Schedules a Meeting!

We're now the LLC Bookish Club; clubbers meet to discuss books, listen to podcasts, watch high-brow television and literary movies, and nosh on tasty snacks. If you like the idea of reading more than you actually read, that's OK. The Bookish Club isn't judgy. We aspire to be a media club with bookish predilections. Our inaugural meeting is tonight  (Monday, 2/2, at 7 pm) in the LLC; we're going to talk books for a half-hour or so then watch the latest episode of Downton Abbey; please RSVP if you plan to join us. More is merrier!
