Thursday's Pause for PAWS guest is Jessie

Jessie is a 2 year old German Shepherd mix.  Jessie had a rough start as one of 375 animals kept in a hoarding house.  Since coming to PAWS Jessie has slowly begun to come out of her shell.  She is still very shy with people, but she loves to play with the other dogs and hang out by the pool. You can stop by and see this sweet girl between 1pm and 5pm today.

If you want to see more PAWS dogs outside of our Pause for PAWS visits, there will be a fundraising event this Saturday from 2pm-6pm at Hanover Winery.  The next PAWS visitor will be here on Tuesday.

Pause for PAWS

Gardner-Harvey Library is pleased to announce that this summer we will be working with PAWS Adoption Center* on our ‘Pause for PAWS’ program.

Pause for PAWS offers students, faculty and staff the opportunity to take a break from the stress of their day to visit with some friendly shelter dogs.  Every Tuesday and Thursday from May 15th through July 26th, a PAWS dog will be in the library from 1pm to 5pm to spread their unique brand of love and cheer. Why not pause your day and stop by to say hello? It is sure to put a smile on your face.

New library materials added in April

The April new materials list is now available. We added 112 books, DVDs, and other items during the month,thanks to your selections and suggestions.  The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.

This month we added 15 e-books to our collection and to our new materials list.  The books are available for reading from the MU catalog.

We’ve added a total of 686 items to the collection in this academic year.  We'll keep posting new item lists through the end of the fiscal year on our blog (this tag will show you all of the prior lists).

Have a suggestion of something to order? We're well past our selector/departmental ordering deadline for the year, but some acquisitions money is still available for anyone to order materials, and we can hold requests until we have our new budget on July 1. 

Use our online request form, email one of our staff members, or drop by the library with your request at any time.

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