(January Edition)

January was a BUSY month in the Sonntag Library! The library was buzzing with research, checkouts, and even student helpers! The events and happenings in the month of January is a sign of great things to come in the second half of the school year. It will be so exciting to see how the spring semester unfolds! 

Most exciting, perhaps, is the brand new Sonntag Library mobile app! Now you can take the Sonntag library with you anywhere you go. You can either scan the QR Code below or click this link. If you want to know more information about this app, click here to go to the blog post. Happy reading! :)
