A Warm Cozy Fireplace

When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than sitting by a cozy fire. 

You may already know how to reserve a study space in the library, but did you know that the library now features a cozy spot with a real burning fireplace? This nook is so much better than any 12-hour video of fireplace crackling sounds, and offers the true warmth someone needs to stay up all night and study.

You can’t book these comfortable seats in advance, but the fire will burn 24-hours a day for library patrons that are faced with late nights and early mornings. When you’re contemplating your next study space, look no further.

Find this warm and cozy fireplace on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the 24-hour zone of the library, in the DiBenedetto Reading Room. Enjoy!

Information Services Desk Update

Merging the help desk and circulation desk operations has proven to be both challenging and rewarding, but we are finally getting into the groove of things and feeling like a single unit at the Information Services Desk! Many may know us as staffed by team members whose previous expertise was limited to either library circulation or help desk services, but that is changing as we continue to cross-train and hire new team members.

The newest employee to join our team is Catherine Simpson, who fills the role of Public Services Specialist here at the Information Services Desk. Catherine performs a variety of tasks, working collaboratively with staff and students, and providing excellent, friendly service. Together, our unit continues to strive for overall improvement of services, and we are constantly evaluating the ways in which we operate day-to-day. Our main goal is to assist Trinity community members in every way possible, and we aim to achieve this goal by offering excellent customer service, building a great team of students and staff, continuously learning and being the best we can be. Feel free to stop by our desk to say hello, meet our new team member, Catherine, or just to challenge us with any questions you may have!
