The Mardigian Library / Stamelos Gallery Center building is currently closed. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 1 with lobby only access for specific services (MeLCat, Interlibrary loan, reserves, student printing, checkouts, returns). Study space and the computer labs will not be available on September 1 but will follow later. Details regarding the reopening will be posted as they are available. Until we reopen, the Mardigian Library will continue to provide many library resources online as well as virtual research support.

Young Authors' Festival

Young Authors' Festival 2020

Due to COVID-19, the Fall 2020 Young Authors’ Festival (YAF) is canceled: this includes the November 7, 2020 celebration with Sarah Stewart and David Small, art exhibition, and writing contest.

The YAF committee made this difficult decision to ensure the safety of everyone involved. We encourage families to celebrate literacy while you stay home and stay safe. Read, write, illustrate, and share stories together.

Thank you so much for all of your support. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Fall 2021 Young Authors’ Festival.
