News & Announcements
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."
The Mabee Library will also be the location in April for another great event: The $100 Burrito: Are You a Money Smart College Student? How is it even possible to end up spending $100 on a $5 burrito? Join us for a fun evening on Wednesday, April 15, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., as we learn about personal finance from a Biblical perspective. We'll talk about the perks and pitfalls of credit cards, budgeting, and saving. Our presenter is Robert A. Sparrow, CFP, Partner, Triune Financial Partners LLC.
On Friday, April 17, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., come play games in the library! Learn new games with experts to facilitate game strategy and play. This event is sponsored by the Goal 21 grant.
