For entertainment, the library has over 5500 DVDs!! My friends and I love to take out movies and have movie nights on the weekends. Seriously, if you can think of it, they probably have it on the shelves. There are also Cd's and audio books that are available for student use.
Interlibrary Loans are another important resource that the library provides students with. It is an opportunity to borrow materials from other local college libraries, but have the convenience of them being delivered to Saint Mike's. This system is great if you need a book for a certain class but we don't have it here at SMC. Then, you can try to obtain it from a neighboring library.
If you are working on a project and need personal assistance locating materials, there are reference librarians available to help you out. There is even a spot on the library website to schedule an appointment right from your dorm room and check the hours that the reference desks are open.
The library has three floors- the basement, the main level, and the upper floor. The basement is a quiet zone, meaning that there are cubicles and study areas that require silence. Also, peer tutoring, the writing center, tons of books, a computer lab, and a media viewing room are located in the basement. Also the Durick Den is in the basement and it is a small lounge where you can grab a quick snack. The main level has books, reference materials, computers, magazines and journals, the DVDs, the reference librarians, and the circulation desk. The upper level of the library has the bulk of the books in the library, a computer lab, the children's book room, and lots of comfy seating.
It is definitely worth checking out Durick Library when you visit Saint Mike's because you will be using it as a student here!
