Crumb Library will be open on Thursday and Friday, December 18 and 19 from noon to 4 and on January 2, 2009 from noon to 4. Between those dates we are closed. If you would like to renew a book and you are registered for Winterim and/or Spring classes, you may do so after 12 noon on Thursday December 18. You may self renew in BearCat (although if you get a message that your renewal was not completed, please contact us). You may call the Crumb circulation desk 315-267-2485 – follow instructions on the greeting. You may send an e-mail to Because we will be open for Winterim, we cannot renew your books until the beginning of Spring Semester. You will need to request a second renewal when your books become due in mid-January and we cannot guarantee a renewal if another patron requests the material. If you want to return material when the library is closed, use the book drops in the walls of Crumb Library adjacent to the doors. If you need to return Crane or Sheard materials, please use the Crumb book drops.

Crumb Library is in the process of gathering all its video materials together to form a video collection at the north end of the 2nd floor.  While this is happening videos may be either in their old location in the book stacks, or in the new video collection.  Please bear with us during this transition – which should be complete by the start of the spring semester.
