The library coffee shop is CLOSED while we look for someone to run it.  Hopefully, we'll have new operators by summer or fall.

A SMART Board is located in the Argo Corner Lounge on the second floor of the library to enhance your collaborative work and group study. UWF students and faculty may check out the controls for the SMART Board at the Checkout/Reserves desk.
