Children’s Museum Closing for Renovations

The Boston Children’s Museum will close for renovations as of January 1, 2007, reopening in the spring. So there’s still time to visit!

Free admission passes are available through the Library’s membership in the museum. They are single-use passes – meaning you don’t have to check them out, and you don’t have to wait until someone else is done with them to use them because everyone gets their own – so if you’re planning to visit the museum this month before it closes, stop by the Circulation Desk before the College closes on December 22 to pick up a pack of passes.

Late Night Library Hours Survey

You may have seen this survey in your email this week, and we thank those of you who have responded already.

Those of you who have not yet responded, what are you waiting for? The survey is still open and we strongly encourage everyone — students, faculty and staff — to click on the link and tell us what night you’d most like to see the Library stay open until 1 a.m.

The survey is short — just three questions — so it will only take a few moments to fill out. There’s also space to leave a comment with your answers. Or you can leave a message in the Comments feature right here on the blog.

We’d like to get as much input as possible from all kinds of Library users — graduate students, we’re looking at you — to make the Library the best possible resource it can be.
