CSS’ Library

Maybe it’s because I love reading and writing (can you tell I’m an English Major?) but I think there is something so calming about a good book, and I get that same feeling whenever I walk into CSS’ library. 

Fun fact: the library actually used to be the College’s Chapel! 

Anyways, the library is open all summer long, and I absolutely love walking in there. I walk into the library every time I have to give a tour – which is at least once a day. Every time I’m on a tour, I remember that I want to check out a couple of books because I have been spending too much money on books for pleasure, and needed to start renting them. Unfortunately, I misplaced my Student ID, and wasn’t sure how I could check out a book without having to buy a new ID, which definitely wasn’t something I wanted to do. Luckily, I went and picked up my winter coats from my house, and found my student ID in one of my fall/spring jackets!! I was so excited that I could finally check out a book! I went there yesterday and looked at the new popular reading they just received and some of the other shelves that contain good books. I ended up checking out two books and am already halfway through one of them…

The library has three floors and feels ginormous. The second and third floors are intended for quiet study, but you can talk normally on the first floor! Third floor is my favorite because there are individual study desks with lamps and plug-ins for your laptop, and there are also two bright light lamps! These lamps give off Vitamin D and you’re supposed to sit under them for about 20 minutes to make yourself feel refreshed and energized during a rainy or snowy day! It’s actually pretty neat and I am interested to try one out. 

I may be biased, but our library definitely is out of the ordinary and I can’t wait to finish my books so I can go back and get some more! (Yes, I know I sound like a nerd, but needs are cool in college.)
