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 be open throughout the summer. Our hours will be: 8 a.m. - 8:30 p.m., Mondays-Thursdays, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m., Fridays, and 12 - 5 p.m., Saturdays (closed Sundays).
The Mabee Library will host a Games and Learning Conference (http://www.mnu.edu/resources/center-for-games-and-learning/events.html) on Friday, July 31, 2015. Registration is open for this event, which is offered through the library's Center for Games and Learning, made possible by an Ignition Sparks! grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Service (imls.gov).
