The summer session is soon here! We have been busy here in the LRTC getting things spruced up, lining up tutors, ordering and processing new books, making changes to help your online research go smoother, and other things in preparation for students coming back next week.

We are open from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday during the summer months. Tutors are available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in Office 129 in the LRTC.

According to The Link, the 2014/Volume 7/ Issue 1 "Summer 2014 ushered a host of exciting changes for Pine Technical & Community College -- a new name, new mission, new opportunities". With the addition of the AA degree, "It's bigger than people realize. It provides a whole new opportunity for people to lift themselves up and achieve a new level of success." says PTCC President Robert Musgrove, Ph.D.
Summer session is underway, and we have many new books for you to use. Research, pleasure reading, technical program manuals, software manuals, nursing diagnosis, to name a few topics. Check out the Summer 2014 list at World Cat link here.
Welcome to Summer Session! The LRTC has been getting busier each day this week as we begin the session. Please feel free to come up and ask for assistance with anything you may find you need a little extra help with. We are here to help you! We have many new books and CD/DVD's that are geared toward parenting. Check them out on the far west side of library in the new resources shelf. Love and Logic is the series they are from. With the kiddos out of school for summer (or soon to be) you may find yourself waiting at beaches, softball games, long car drives or commutes to activities where you could utilize a book or book on CD. Check one out! Hope you have a great summer! Remember we have shortened hours, 7:30 to 4:00 pm Monday - Friday.
With May 15th fast approaching, just thought I'd send out a reminder to everyone who may have library materials to bring them back before they are done with their finals. There are no overdue fees charged, but a replacement fee of $45.00 per item and a hold on college record for lost or non-returned items. Also, we have been busy all week, and next week will be even more so. It would be appreciated if the small group conversations would be taken out of the LRTC and in the hall or student lounge. If everyone would be mindful of unnecessary trips through the LRTC walkway as well, it would be much appreciated by those taking online tests or finishing research papers, or just studying for tests. Thanks!
The LRTC will be open extended hours this Saturday, May 10, 2014. We will be open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and the librarian will be on duty most of that time, so if you have questions for her about citations, bibliography, plagiarism, etc. this would be a great time to come in and work!If you have been putting off finishing an assignment or two, this would be a great day to come in and get it done.
New Books and Materials Although we are nearing the end of spring semester, I wanted to post the link to our new materials. This list is added to continuously as we catalog and prepare new materials for our collections. Check it out! Maybe there will be something you'd like to read over semester break and return when Summer Session begins. I hope you've enjoyed the new books we've showcased this semester in the display outside of the library next to the nursing offices, and also the new book displays we've had up in the LRTC as well. Happy Reading!
The LRTC will be closed Monday, February 17, 2014 due to the Presidents' Day Holiday, and also Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 due to Pine Technical College's Shooting Association hosting of the 31st annual gun show. Please plan ahead so you are not disappointed when you arrive and our doors are locked and the library is dark!
