Partnership Center Library opening March 15

The Sanford/Lake Mary Campus Library will close from Friday, March 5 through Sunday, March 14, to finalize the move to the new Partnership Center Library. Phone lines will be disconnected on March 5 as well so that equipment can be moved.

The Altamonte Springs and Oviedo campus libraries will be open for their regular hours on March 5, from 8 a.m.-noon.

Students are welcome to do online research via the library’s Web site, where thousands of e-books may be found.

Pat DeSalvo, dean of Libraries and Learning Technology, says she looks forward to opening the library’s doors to the public at 7:30 a.m. on March 15. She and her staff will be there to personally welcome students as they arrive.

This 32,000-square-foot facility replaces the original library, built in the 1970s, with a sophisticated design that includes state-of-the-art technology and amenities, including:

  • A library café with booth-style seating for group discussion, study, snacks and beverages.
  • A centrally located information services desk with staff who are cross-trained in circulation, research and reference resources to provide timely assistance. Visitors can borrow headphones and laptops at the desk, and request materials through Interlibrary Loan and pick up reserved materials.
  • A Student ID station.
  • A Quiet Study Room provides individual work areas for up to 20 students.
  • Study rooms for larger groups contain video screens for multimedia coursework that are available on a first come, first served basis.
  • A self-checkout station to borrow materials.
  • A Computer Lab provides access to 144 computers.
  • An open staircase takes visitors from the first-floor café to the second floor.
