Due to COVID-19 protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of our community living and working on campus, visitors are prohibited from the library. Therefore, we will not be hosting any in-person events, including the Annual Book Sale in October. Additionally, circulation privileges through your Friends’ membership are currently suspended. Your 7/1/19-6/30/20 membership has been extended for another year. We will continue to send you a bi-annual newsletter and calendar as well as invitations to online speaker programming.

Best wishes,

~ Your Geisel Library friends
