Top 10 things to do while the Library is closed this weekend

For the second weekend in a row the University Library will be closed! Not to worry, starting the weekend of June 6th, the Library will be open 8 am - 5 pm on Saturday (but closed Sundays).

Here is a list of things to fill your time while we’re closed May 30 and 31st.

  1. Go the Sacramento Public Library branch nearest you for free Internet access.
  2. Go to one of the many coffee shops in Sacramento offering free wi-fi access. Hint: Try a Tupelo, Java City, or Panera location nearest you.
  3. Take a trip to the beach! Paradise Beach on the American River, just down the levee from campus, is recommended by two out of three librarians for its beautiful sand dunes. Remember to wear protective gear if you choose to swim.
  4. Visit one of the many fine California State Parks in the region before they’re closed due to state budgetary woes. Fort Sutter, for example, is both close and free!
  5. Stop by a local used bookstore such as the Avid Reader to find a dusty tome to take home.
  6. Pick up some fresh fruits and veggies at a local farmer’s market.
  7. Take a weekend getaway to San Francisco. There are too many possibilities to list here!
  8. Picnic at the Rancho Seco Recreational Area. Go to see the abandoned nuclear facilities stay for the fishing.
  9. Watch a thunderstorm in the Sierras.
  10. Enjoy some football (that’s soccer to some of us). Reza recommends the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Everton.

Library closed Memorial weekend

For the first time in this librarian’s (admittedly short) memory, the University Library will be closed all three days of the long Memorial Day weekend. So, if you’ve got any books to borrow, print magazines to read, or questions to ask please take care of that before Friday, May 22nd at 7:00 pm.

We’ll be open again Tuesday, May 26th but we’ll be having a short week of very reduced hours, so be sure to check our schedule of hours before making that trek to campus!

Computer Lab Maintenance

The large computer lab on the 2nd floor of the Library will be closed until January 14th for upgrades. While the good people at IRT make those changes, please use the computers on the 3rd floor or in the Library Collaborative if you would like to use any production software. The research stations on the 2nd floor are still available for public use.
