Library Renovation Update
The Library will be closed from May 12th through mid-August.
There will be no access to the library during the summer. Please plan to gather all books needed for the summer prior to May 11th.
Book returns and pick up of interlibrary loan materials will be located in the Curriculum Library located in HAL.
More information will be forthcoming in a campus-wide email and the May Newsletter. At that time there will be a renovation update section available on the Library’s webpage to stay up-to-date with specific information during the 16 month renovation project.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we update Buhl with new spaces that we think you're going to love!

April is National Poetry Month
April is National Poetry Month! Did you know 2021 marks the 25th year since the establishment of the celebration of poets and poetry every year? Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, families, and, of course, poets, marking poetry's important place in our lives. (From Poets.org.)
Check out just a small selection of our poetry collection below!
Browse more of our poetry collection by searching Poetry in HENRY and narrowing your search results by using the subjects on the left-hand side. You can also search for a particular poet (I.e. Mary Oliver), country (i.e. Japan Poetry) or group of people, time period or event (i.e. War Poetry).
The Benefits of Reading for Fun
Did you know that just 6 minutes of reading can help reduce stress levels as much a drinking a cup of coffee or tea, going for a walk or listening to music? It can also help increase levels of empathy and help keep our minds active as we age to avoid cognitive decline. (From EdWeek.org and Front Range Community College)
We have a great collection! Since the library will be closed this summer plan your reading list early and stop in to pick up titles before May 12th. You can browse our collection here. Looking for some recommendations?
