Coming Soon to a Location Near You...

...the MDC North Campus Library! That's right, folks. If you can't come to the library, the library will go to you. It's the new Library on the Fly program, where your friendly neighborhood North Campus librarians appear at campus events with topical books.

Maybe you noticed us at the Job Fair earlier this semester; you may have checked out some books about careers or resumes. Or maybe you were at the Caribbean Festival recently, and found some of our books on the islands interesting enough to take home.

Look out for us at future campus events! All you need is your student ID card to check the books out for three weeks at a time. Just don't forget to return your books to any MDC library!

Take a trip through time this St. Patrick's Day as the reader explores Eire from ancient times to modern in Michael Jenner's Ireland Through the Ages. Begin with curious neolithic rock formations created by prehistoric inhabitants, foray through vernacular and majestic architecture, and end with the Irish Free State. From the book jacket:

The past in Ireland lives powerfully in the present. An amazing variety of physical remains, bearing the scars and trophies of Ireland's chequered history, tell of bygone personalities, endeavours and events. This beautifully illustrated narrative uses a multitude of these places as stepping stones through the ages to evoke the glory of Ireland's heritage.

Ireland Through the Ages can be found in the North Campus Library at DA 978.2 .J46 1992.
