Welcome to the New Helmke Highlights!

January 2017 marks the reopening of the library after a year-long renovation which has brought refreshed lighting, increased electrical capacity, wireless and sprinklers, energy-efficient heating and cooling, a fortified foundation and new finishings throughout the building.

What’s next? Our staff is hard at work on additional building improvements, such as a high-tech classroom for exploring information and technology. We’re also working on a slate of new events, featured collections, and growing partnerships with our Learning Commons collaborators.

You’ll be able to follow all of our updates right here at the new Helmke Highlights! Simply subscribe via email or RSS on this page, or bookmark our blog to check back for the latest news. Of course, we’re also available on social media, and you can chat with us any time from the Helmke Library homepage!
