There is more to Blount Library than research work.

After a hard day of the academic grind, the library offers a quiet environment to relax and unwind.

Leisure Reading

In addition to our academic volumes and journals, Blount Library offers a selection of popular fiction, magazines, and newspapers.  And, if you are feeling particularly inspired by one of your professors, we also offer books from faculty authors.  Click the hyperlinks for a list of each.

Book Sales

We have some used popular fiction and academic books for sale, on the main floor.  One dollar per book.  Please pay at the circulation desk.

Table Top Gaming

Students are always welcome to bring their own games - and we will happily accept any donations to the library's game collection.

The library offers free access to all of the following and more:

Come on over with a few friends and enjoy an evening of gaming.  Just keep the noise to a reasonable volume (or play behind closed doors in an upstairs study room), as other students might be working.

Click the "Reserve a Space" tab if you would like to double-check to be sure the library isn't holding other events at the same time!
