Walk this way: our new terrace path is open!

With the incredible efforts of the Grounds Crew and our Physical Facilities department, the hillside entrance to the library is now fully open.  The library terrace has long been available for sitting, studying, and eating outside, but we now have a wonderful patio area and a path that leads over to the stairway by Levy.  This provides easy access to the library from Levy's second floor or from the upper parking lot and Verity Lodge.  Enjoy using this wonderful path of paving stones as you enter and leave the library.

Library materials added in July and August

To bring you up to date on what has recently been added to the collection, a new materials list is now available that reflects additions during May and June. We added 92 books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.  

24 of the items are DVDs.  People often think that we only buy documentaries and teaching materials on DVD (not that there's anything wrong with that), but we also buy DVDs that can serve both educational and recreational needs.

This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials, in reverse chronological order.

If you have a suggestion of something to order, please use our online request form, email Jennifer Hicks or one of our other staff members, or drop by the library with your request.  

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!

Support the Gardner-Harvey Library through MoveInMiami

#MoveInMiami 
Tomorrow, Thursday, August 21, Miami University is holding a one-day fundraiser to support activities throughout the University called "MoveInMiami."  The library has been added to the list of possible funds to receive donations. 

As an added bonus to our regional campus donors and friends, Regional Campus Dean Mike Pratt and his wife Patty will personally contribute $10 to the fund of your choice for each new gift raised on 8/21 during this campaign (gift must be $5 or more and must be to a regional campus fund).

This is an exciting opportunity for the library to raise gift funds to support our programming, add new books and technology, and serve members of the Middletown community as well as our students, faculty, and staff members.

If you are interested in making even a small gift to the Gardner-Harvey Library (or our sister library in Hamilton), please use the form at http://www.forloveandhonor.org/RegionalLibraries.  All gifts are tax deductible, and you will be emailed a receipt upon making a gift online.  Gifts must be made on August 21 to qualify for this initiative.

Thank you very much for your time!
