Our summer hours are reduced. Due to COVID, I do not yet have a confirmation on our summer hours. The library actually hires for multiple departments (archives, administration, collections & access support, Wiekamp Educational Resource Commons, circulation, interlibrary loan). At this time, circulation is the only department starting to staff for the upcoming semesters”, said Circulation Supervisor Katherin Plodowski.
