Expanded Library Hours!

The Mabee Library will now be open until 12am (midnight) Sundays through Thursdays during the traditional Fall and Spring semesters. Our hours will be: 7 a.m. - 12 p.m., Mondays-Thursdays, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Fridays, 12 - 5 p.m., Saturdays, and 8 p.m. - 12 a.m., Sundays.

Chapel Messages Reading Lists

MNU is a community of Christian faith as well as learning, and, therefore, weekly "Community Chapel" services are the heart of our campus. The library is partnering with chapel presenters to develop lists of resources for reading and viewing so those engaged by the presentation can seek further reflection on the topics discussed. Resources can be requested in the library. This guide is available on the library main page, under "Resource Search."
