Hey - Be sure to keep up on all the cool happenings in Walter Library!





Further information, including the step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Attention Students!

Gate counts are happening once again this weekend. I apologize for having almost back to back instances of hourly gate counts, but alas, it must happen.

Please remember to take the gate counts once an hour every hour we are open starting this Sunday, April 6th through Saturday, April 12th. Please and many thank yous!


I whistled for a pen, and clipboard in hand,
I went and took the counts like my supervisor demands.
The counts were so high that I couldn't believe,
and I though, 'nah forget it, it's almost time to leave!'

I. Pulled. Into the library about seven forty five,
Feeling so tired I was barely alive.
I looked at my kingdom, it was not too shabby,
To sit on my throne, at the Walter Library.

[We have two week of hourly gate counts coming up pretty close to each other. Starting this Sunday, 3/23, remember your hourly gate counts every hour, on the hour. Thanks!]

The libraries have a tax forms page HERE:

The page details local tax help and provides links to online tax form sources.

You can also do a library website search for tax forms and this will be the first link that comes up.


Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 9. Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead!

DVD and VHS that are on RESERVE in Walter Library DO NOT CIRCULATE OVERNIGHT.

These items can be in high demand when an assignment is given. To ensure that all students in need have the greatest access to them we must strictly adhere to the 3 hour check out period, with NO OVERNIGHT LOAN.

If no other student is asking to use a film and the current user would like to check it out for another 3 hour period that is OK.

Please refer any questions or concerns about this policy to Priscilla.

FYI, we do change due dates up to two weeks for instructors who are showing the video in class. In Alma, after you check a video out to a patron, there is a "Change Due Date" button. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask a supervisor, me, or Jenny Veile. Thanks!

Listen to a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
Now I'd like to take a minute just sit on down
And I'll tell you how I became the Prince of a Hourly Gate Counts.

Southeast Minneapolis, born and raised,
In the library is where I spent most of my days.
Chillin' out, reading, shelving all cool,
Helping check out books inside of the school.

When a couple of guys, who never were here
Started showing up upstairs and everywhere
I counted two gates a day and my supervisor got scared
He said you're taking the Gate Counts every hour, and that's fair.

To be continued...

While the public printer is out of order, you can refer students to the student computer lab in 103 Walter. Their Winter Break hours are 9am-4pm Monday-Friday. They are closed this weekend. This lab is only available to students. The best workaround for visitors would be to refer them to another library (Math, Architecture, Journalism) or Coffman Printing Services (basement level).
