The Hawkeye Community College Library was pleasantly surprised to find it was featured on the cover of the September 2016 issue of Choice. The Hawkeye Library is the second Cedar Valley library to be featured in 2016; UNI’s Rod Library graced the cover in May 2016.

Loras College Library welcomed Jennifer Saulnier on June 13th. Jen is our new Instruction Services Librarian. She had all summer to get ready to jump into information literacy instruction this fall! She also created a great intro to the library and librarians, with the help of her fellow library staffers, to provide information to all of our first year students.
