Pardon our progress as we renovate the James H. White Library!!!!
The library officially operates from the Academic Skills Building. Our patrons can expect the same quality of services, that they experienced in the actual James H. White Library. The Computer Lab is fully functional with Internet access, check-out & check-in policies are still in effect. We encourage our community of library users to stop by the temporary location and chat with us about the renovations.
Please continue to follow MVSU News and the library’s webpage for further updates as to when we will once again operate from the James H. White Library. If additional information or clarification is needed, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
