From my favorite poet… Emily Dickinson

In light of the inaugural “TeaCups & CoffeeBeans” poetry open mic night, tomorrow at 7 on the Library Patio, I thought I’d post a poem relevant to the world of libraries and books:

There is no frigate like a book (1263)

by Emily Dickinson, 1830 – 1886


There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a
Page Of prancing Poetry – 
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll – 
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul

Party on the Patio

Library officially opens 2nd Floor library patio on Tuesday afternoon.

The library can get a little cold sometimes; the patio allows students to study outdoors while they enjoy the breeze from outside.

The patio has been opened since the beginning of the semester, but many students were unaware. The Library came up with the idea to have a party to let everyone know about the study area.

Mother Nature had her way with the rain that afternoon, but it didn’t stop the festivities.


Students, faculty and staff enjoyed food and drinks provided by Lynn’s catering staff, outdoors on the patio and inside on the second floor landing. Students seemed to appreciate the extra space now, and are happy the library made the move.
