The Library Insider: News from Langsdale

The Case of the Missing Library

By Laura Melamed

Are you looking for the library?

We’re open in our new location. Find us on the third floor of the Learning Commons. Whether you take the elevator or the stairs, you can’t miss us.

We know that treasure hunts can be fun but in this case you might have to settle for finding us as soon as you reach the third floor. The fun could be found in hunting for books but, sorry to disappoint you, that may be a little easier as well.

Our books are now located several feet from the circulation desk which you can see as soon as you enter DVDs are still right nearby and they’re still free to check out. Several study rooms can be found near the circulation desk as well.

You can find more study rooms on the fourth floor along with a number of computers.

Is it time for a study break? Take in the expansive view of Baltimore City through huge windows on both the third and fourth floors.

Do you want to socialize? Come to the library’s Cupcake Social on Sept. 3 from rom 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fill your water bottle at one of the library’s two filtered water filling stations.

Do you need to prove to your parents you were at the library?

Get your photo taken with your favorite book. Library staff can turn a portrait of you and your beloved publication into a Read poster for parents, posterity or personal enjoyment. It’s up to you to pick.

Then pick out another book. Langsdale Library has many. You never know which one will be your new favorite.

Obviously, there are many reasons to visit the library. And obviously, it’s a visit you don’t want to miss.
