Finals are Here! Extended Hours and More...

It's finals season here at LMU, and that means that the library is quite a popular place these days! 

To accommodate the extra crowds through finals, all three levels of Hannon Library will be open all day and all night for LMU community with valid OneCards from 11 a.m. Sunday December 4 through 5 p.m. on Friday December 16. 

If you're studying for finals... don't forget to:
  • Make your group study room reservation ahead of time
  • Keep an eye out for the library staff snack cart
  • Be courteous of your fellow students- remember that Level 3 is a quiet floor 
  • Check WHH 117 and 118 if you're looking for a computer and the Info Commons is full
  • Stop and admire our unique Christmas tree, made out of these books 
  • Ask a librarian for help if you need it!

And after you make it through finals week, we will be open limited hours through December 22, and closed for the holidays from December 23 through January 2. Click here to visit the library hours web site for more detailed information.

Good luck!


Faculty Pub Night: Nadia Kim

Please join us for the last Faculty Pub Night of the semester, where we will be welcoming Nadia Kim, Associate Professor of Sociology, as she speaks about her work, Imperial Citizens: Koreans and Race from Seoul to L.A. (Stanford, 2008).

1911 books cropCommended for "its elegant treatment of nuanced arguments at the cutting edge of debates in the study of race, immigration, and globalization" (Kang, Journal of International Migration and Integration, 11 (4), 453-455) Kim's work explores, through interviews and ethnographic methods, the formation of discourses around Asian-American identity.

Wednesday December 7
5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Von der Ahe Family Suite (Level 3)

Free & open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

Food for Fines
Food for Fines
Do you have a book or ten that you forgot to turn in on time this semester? Now is your chance to reduce your fines, and help feed a hungry family this holiday season at the same time.

From Monday, December 5 through Friday, January 20, the William H. Hannon Library is hosting Food for Fines.

For every food item that you bring in (rice, beans, peanut butter, canned meats, canned fruits, and canned vegetables are most needed), you can reduce your library fines* by $2. (That's $2 for each item donated!)

All donations will go to directly to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, a non-profit organization at the heart of a charitable food distribution network that includes over 900 charitable agency sites throughout Los Angeles County.

To exchange your food for fines, please bring your donation items to the library Circulation Desk on Level 1. (Donations also happily accepted by those who don't have fines! Look for the LA Foodbank donation boxes around the library.)

*Please note that replacement charges for lost materials are not included in Food for Fines.
