Your library card is a great resource! It is your key to unlocking a whole world of information. The JCC Libraries give you access to thousands of resources – in print or online, scholarly or popular. We also provide some wonderful services that can help you succeed, such as asking a librarian for help with research or citations, borrowing materials for free from other libraries using interlibrary loan, or using a designated group study area to meet and collaborate with your classmates. However, it doesn’t have to be all work and no play. Here are a few fun things that you can do with your JCC library card:
Borrow a popular e-book title from the JCC Libraries’ Axis360 Magic Wall:
Check out a movie to watch with your friends
Borrow a popular magazine or bestselling book
(Wait…is that a Transformer?)
Use the library computers
Take a study break and play a board game in the library with your friends
Summer in Western New York is a great time to explore and learn about the ecosystem in which we live. If you are going on a hike, camping trip, or kayaking a waterway, consider taking a field guide book with you! The JCC Campus libraries have a wide array of field guides patrons may check out. Trees, wildflowers, butterflies, mammals, fishes, insects, mushrooms, and grizzly bears—oh my!—are just a few of the topics available. Impress your friends! The next time a companion points at the sky and states out loud “I wonder what kind of bird that is!” in a jiffy you’ll be able to confidently pronounce “That’s an osprey!”
• The Hultquist Lost and Found bin is starting to look like an episode of Horders! We have coats, bags, flashdrives, notebooks and other assorted items.

Good luck with your finals and have a wonderful summer!
