The Honors College office, located in the Centennial residence hall is starting their own small library for the students that live in Centennial and other honors students.
The library only contains a few classics, but they hope to build the library with donations of bookshelves and any types of books including old textbooks for research purposes.
“Having a library in the residence hall would make it easy to find books for classes, reference materials or outside class reading material,” Program Coordinator Betti Cryer said.
The Honors Program Director, Dr. Craig Clifford has been discussing it for years, after seeing other honors colleges that had their own libraries. The honors college wants to provide their students with a collection of books that are easily accessible.
“The idea of having a library in the Honors Residence Hall is something that we have wanted to do for a while and what’s more fitting than having books in an Honors Hall,” Cryer said.
It will be on the first floor of the residence hall in a room that also contains two computers.
To donate books or bookshelves contact Ellen Mayfield in the honors office at 254-968-1926, or come by the honors office in Centennial Hall.
