BREAKING: Multimedia Films ‘Looking for Valentine’s Date, Hoping to be Checked Out’

It’s finally February! Even though we’re technically still trudging through winter, something about this month always makes me feel energized. Exams are cropping up, temperatures are rising (ever so slightly), and spring is just around the corner. And on top of all that, love is in the air–and on our shelves!

As some of you may know, we like to keep our feature films rotating. This month, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re showcasing stories about that mysterious, elusive, necessary king of all emotions: love. We’ve got classics, including Now Voyager and My Fair Lady; rom-coms, such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding and What Women Want; and even a tragic documentary about the intersection between terminal illness and love (Death: A Love Story).

To make a long story short, we’ve got all our bases covered. From love-sick, jaded seniors to smitten freshmen, we think everyone will find something to get in the spirit this month. Also, if you’re staunchly anti-Valentine’s Day (or just a decent person with an interest in broadening a horizon or two) come check out our revised Black History Month collection, also available on the feature shelf. And on that note, this blogger has some films to peruse!

New Piano in Multimedia

The Multimedia Center is excited to announce the addition of a digital piano to the library.  It is located near the video collection on the 4th floor.

The School of Music has generously provided this digital piano, a Clavinova, for students to use in the library.  While enrolled piano students will have priority access, it is available to anyone.  Some examples:

  • Try out a score before you check it out
  • Blow off some steam during a quick study break
  • Practice your chord progressions for Jazz Theory class
  • Test compositional ideas
  • Stop by and play for fun

Headphones are required.  You can check out a set from the Multimedia desk.
