From Our Family To Yours, Happy Holidays!

We plan, we work, we strive.  We overcome challenges.  We gather and laugh and celebrate.  In the midst of the myriad efforts, large and small, that the TWU Libraries make to support the information needs of TWU students, faculty and staff members, and other patrons, the libraries' staff functions as one unit.  We are colleagues, yet more. At the end of the day we respect, appreciate and support each other.  We are family.

As the TWU community wraps up 2013 and adjourns for Winter Break, the TWU Libraries family extends to you and yours our sincerest wish for all the connection, gratitude and delight that the holiday season inspires.

Note:  The TWU Libraries will be closed from Saturday, December 21st through Wednesday, January 1st.  On Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 the Blagg-Huey Library in Denton will open at 9 a.m.; the Dallas Center Library will open at 9 a.m.; and the Houston ARC will open at 8 a.m.  Please see the TWU Libraries Hours & Directions page for further details.

The TWU Libraries and guests celebrated the 2013 holiday season with food, music and camaraderie.  Ryan Becker, Library Assistant in Technical Services, performed 
White Christmas (below) and other selections.   

See you next year.

Finals Week at the Blagg-Huey Library

Finals Week is fast approaching, and the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus is once again featuring extended hours and its traditional coffee breaks to help TWU students prepare for final exams.  A cherished and growing tradition, the coffee breaks feature free healthy snacks (courtesy of Student Life), coffee and tea—all served in a festive atmosphere—providing students with opportunities to refuel and recharge during this particularly important time in the semester.

We hope you will take advantage of the schedule below as you and your students prepare for Fall 2013 final exams.

As always, the staff of the TWU Libraries stand ready to assist you with your research and other information needs.  As you prepare for final exams, we encourage you to contact us if we can be of assistance.
