ANNOUNCEMENT OF LIBRARY CLOSURE
The Library Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to close the Vose Library for an extended period of time starting Tuesday, March 17. All programs are postponed and Library services, including Interlibrary Loan requests and deliveries have been canceled until further notice. We are working to develop a collection of online resources to keep you better connected to important health information and online library services, and we invite you to visit our website in the days ahead to check on important updates. No late fees will be applied to overdue library items, and we ask that you hold on to your checked-out materials until we reopen.
