In response to students’ desire for more 24-hour spaces on campus, the Birnbaum Library is pleased to announce that the Library Fishbowl is now open 24 hours. Stay tuned, as we hope to make a similar announcement about the Birnbaum Library Setters Lounge soon.

To keep a library operating efficiently requires regular housekeeping. Recently, in the course of inventorying a storage and gift book room, librarians at the Birnbaum Library discovered a trove of rare books. Highlights include two first edition copies of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle; a signed first edition of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s The Buck in the Snow and Other Poems; a first edition of Robert Frost’s Mountain Interval, notable for its typographic errors; a first edition of William Faulkner’s The Town, complete with dust jacket; and many more, including books dating from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Most of the books were acquired by donation over many years and have yet to be processed, and we are currently adding to the new collection by identifying rare books in the circulating collection to be relocated. Stay tuned for more information, as we hope to make the collection accessible soon.
