Free summer entertainment!

 Summer is a good time to remember that the Libraries are not just about research and course readings!  We have several collections to help you enjoy summer:

  • An extensive DVD collection including comedy, drama, action, TV shows and family fare.  You may check out 2 DVDs at a time for one week to help kids through those long drives.
  • A "Current Literature" collection with recent fiction and non-fiction. (beach reading!)
  • Don't have that DVD player in the car yet?  We have a great selection of audio books on CD.
The above collections are all on the first floor of Jackson Library.

And there's more: 
  • Schiffman Music Library in the Music Building has a wonderful collection of CDs.  You may not find top 40 there but plenty of classical, jazz and musical comedy.
And we have great online collections, too, available 24/7 to anyone with a UNCG ID.
