Proctoring Services Suspended through 2018

Due to the upcoming construction on the upper level of the library (beginning in mid-October), we will not be accepting any new proctoring requests for 2018. If you have already taken a test at the library this semester, we will allow you to finish your course.  That being said, it may be noisy on the upper level once construction starts.  It is likely to be quieter in the evenings, but quiet cannot be guaranteed.

Another local option is Negaunee Public Library: 906/ 475-7700 ext. 18.

This vintage drawing of our benefactor was unearthed last year at the Reference Desk by one of our staff. It was originally published in *Our Michigan Friends “As We See ’em”* (1905), a collection of cartoons and caricatures of Michigan’s business leaders, professionals, politicians, and other notables drawn by members of the Newspaper Cartoonists’ Association of Michigan. You can view the entire collection on the Library of Congress website:
