Library Summer Schedule ☀️


Due to the final stage of the Buhl Library renovation, the library will close to everyone starting on Wednesday, May 11 and the closure will last through summer break. For details on how to access library materials over the summer please review the steps below:

  • Faculty and staff who need items from the stacks over the summer can request Buhl books and other library items (such as videos and audiobooks) using Renovation Item Request form.
    • The form will be posted in the Library Catalog, Discovery, and on our webpage beginning May 11.
    • For interlibrary loans, staff will need to use the regular ILL form.
  • ILL and stacks books will be available for pick-up at the TLC HelpDesk over the summer.
  • Faculty and staff who are returning items are asked to drop them off using the designated box at the TLC HelpDesk.

Help Willie the Wolverine Travel to all 50 States This Summer!


In our inaugural launch of Summer Reading at Buhl Library, we thought it would be fun to put those pages of reading to good use! Thus we decided for each page we read as a group will help Willie the Wolverine travel 1 mile in his quest to visit all 50 states in the US this summer. So we hope you'll join us and Willie in this quest and participate by sharing your reading with us!.

Here's how it works:

  • Every time you finish reading something (and we mean anything: magazines, books, graphic novels, eBooks, audiobooks) you can use the form linked below and enter the title of what you read, the total page count, and the date you finished it.
  • Every so often we'll update Willie's travel map to see how far he's traveled so far but this importantly needs you to make it work.
  • The Summer Reading Challenge will run from Wednesday, May 11 through Friday, August 19.
  • Finally, everyone who participates will receive a prize at the start of the Fall Semester!

Happy Graduation To Our Buhl Library Senior Student Workers!


We want to wish our graduating senior library workers the best of luck as they move on from Grove City College and thank them for all the wonderful memories they shared with us at Buhl Library!

Anna Sarkisian

I have so many memories of working at the library, but one of the best was when the staff decorated the library for Christmas this year (Barbra's punch is pretty unforgettable). There was much stringing of lights and tomfoolery and Amy yelling at us to stop being liabilities. I have loved working with all the awesome librarians and student workers, and I will miss sitting behind the desk and getting to see so many lovely people every day!

Liv Nitzsche

My favorite memory of working at the library was probably our Christmas party or jumping with Amy. After graduation, I will be working in the marketing department of Ramsey Solutions.

Bekah Townsend

My favorite memory of working at the library is closing the library on Friday nights with awesome co-workers who are now my friends. After graduation, I will be attending Duquesne University for their accelerated Nursing school.

My favorite library memory: When we went bowling in the library #iykyk

Lydia Barth

Probably my favorite library memory is when Amy was teaching a class in the small reference room and a student threw an egg at the window. It scared her so bad and was so hilarious. We still laugh about it today. My post-grad plans are to work in the Corporate Communications department of First National Bank's corporate office in Pittsburgh. I am so excited!

New Faculty Publications


Professor Carl Trueman recently published his latest work Strange New World: How Thinkers and Activists Redefined Identity and Sparked the Sexual Revolution. In it, Trueman discusses "How did the world arrive at its current, disorienting state of identity politics, and how should the church respond? Trueman shows how influences ranging from traditional institutions to technology and pornography moved modern culture toward an era of “expressive individualism.” Investigating philosophies from the Romantics, Nietzsche, Marx, Wilde, Freud, and the New Left, he outlines the history of Western thought to the distinctly sexual direction of present-day identity politics and explains the modern implications of these ideas on religion, free speech, and personal identity."
