Library | Patrick Henry College (PHC)

While you were away, the librarians were busy preparing a new library catalog for you. We think it is pretty wonderful, if we may be so bold. Please check it out by visiting our updated library homepage. Run a search and see what you find! Would you believe that your searches will now reveal items in our eBook collection, online databases, as well as our print collection? You may find yourself needing to use the search refining options now because a standard search reveals too many options! (From Mrs. Pensgard's ASE) https://www.phc.edu/library

The mission of Patrick Henry College Library is to provide quality information services, resources, and facilities to the campus learning community.

Items checked out now have a due date of 12/14 - please, please, please return all items before you leave unless you have approval. We would love to have everything home for the holidays - to get ready for next semester! Blessings on your studies!

In order for you to have any hope of receiving the ILL in time to use it in your research paper, midnight tonight is the deadline for requesting Interlibrary Loans.

The due date for everything is no later than 12/6. With the 7 day grace period, you can return all items by 12/14 without fines. If you have a multi-semester project, such as a thesis or DRW, or a professor approved extension, please see me or Mrs. Pensgard for instructions on library due date extensions.

You are almost there! Prayers are with you all!

11/25/2019

Friendly reminder: ILL’s and PHC books now have a due date no later than Dec. 6. There’s a 7 day grace period meaning all items must be returned prior to dorms closing on Dec. 14 at 3 PM to avoid end of semester fines.

If you have a multi-semester research project – thesis, DRW, incomplete, or a professor has granted an extension past dorms closing, check in with Mrs. Thornhill or Mrs. Pensgard to get on the exceptions list and extend your due dates.

Last day to request an ILL is Sunday, Dec. 1, at midnight. ILL requests placed after that time will be deleted unless you are on the exceptions list.

You can do this! If you need us, we are here for you!

Thought for paper season: "If you wait until conditions are perfect, you’ll never write a thing. It’s always a matter of the will. The songs won’t create themselves, and neither will the books, the recipes, the blue-prints, or the gardens." (Andrew Peterson) Time to get writing?

Exegetical Worksheet anyone? Preferred commentaries are on reserve in the library. However, the library cannot provide individual copies for all students at the same time.

Toni Morrison (1931-2019) Nobel prize winner, novelist, editor, teacher, professor emeritus at Princeton University, and Pulitzer Prize winner and a fierce advocate for public libraries.

Toni Morrison was an incredible person on so many levels. Nobel prize winner, novelist, editor, teacher, professor emeritus at Princeton University, and Pulitzer Prize winner are only some of the many groundbreaking accomplishments she achieved. In addition to this impressive list, she also played a vital role in bringing black literature to the mainstream and was a fierce advocate for public libraries.

It’s hard to come up with a fitting tribute for a woman who changed the world in such powerful ways. Though The Book Thing is not a library, we do regularly stock Morrison’s books and they fly off the shelves as fast as we are able to put them out. She is one of the top authors we get requests for, which I believe may perhaps be the greatest acknowledgement of her legacy. We never have enough of her books to meet the demand for them.

In honor of her work and the opportunities she created, I will personally be donating $500 to supply The Book Thing with as many of Toni Morrison’s books as I am able to acquire. I pledge that as the Executive Director I will actively work to increase our consistent numbers of available books by black authors, through partnerships with other organizations and by allocating a portion of donated funds to supplement any gaps in what books are donated.

If you would like to join me in this mission, please email us to discuss partnerships or send us a donation via our website. Please be sure to note that the donations are in honor of Toni Morrison, so we can direct them appropriately. Cash or check donations can be made at our Book Drop window, during donation hours. (Listed below.)

May she rest in power.

-Bunny

Book Thing Hours:
- Get Books: Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm.
- Donations and Volunteering : Mon-Fri from 10am to 4pm; Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm (Please check our website for current donation guidelines before visiting.)

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Black text on white background that reads: “‘My second job as a teenager was shelving books at the only library in Lorain, Ohio. Every shift started with a tall stack of returned books-fiction, history, drama, poetry, everything. It didn’t pay much, but it was magical. Then I got fired.

The trouble was that instead of replacing the books on the shelves, I kept reading them. A title would catch my eye, I’d crack the book open for just a quick look, and pretty soon I’d forget the stack of returns. I didn’t get far in my career as a librarian, but that experience opened my eyes and shaped my future.

That’s what libraries do.’
