Welcome back!

No matter how many years we may have been working here at the library, the first day of Fall Semester always has an excitement in the air that you just don't get any other time of the year -- even when the air is as wet as it is today -- so we're thrilled as always to see so many returning faces along with bright-eyed new ones getting their first taste of the Samford experience.  To all our returning students, welcome back!  To all our new students, welcome HOME!

With the start of the new academic year, the library has resumed its normal operating hours.  Please note however that the library will be closing at 8:00pm on Sunday, September 1st and will be CLOSED Monday, September 2nd in observance of Labor Day.  We will re-open at 7:30am on Tuesday, September 3rd.

The BIG news, however, is that thanks to the generosity from those who contributed to the library's project during Samford's BIG GIVE event in the spring we are able to offer charging lockers to our students!  These charging lockers provide a safe and secure charging options for laptops, tablets, phones, and other portable electronic devices.  These 5-bay lockers are located on the first and second floors next to the copiers, and each bay is equipped with both 110V and USB charging options.  Each bay also features a keypad lock that works just like a hotel safe with user-generated codes.  We're excited to be able to offer this resource to our students and we anticipate many dead batteries brought back to life throughout the year!
