New Book Displays for November

All Things Writing sign

We have two new book displays available in the 2nd floor lobby of the Duderstadt Center. The first display is called "All Things Writing," and includes books on writing content in many contexts, including resumes, exams, web pages, architecture books, and others. The second display highlights several of the comics in our graphic novel collection, with a theme of the Justice League.

New Book Displays for October

We have a couple of new book displays set up in the lobby on the 2nd floor of the Duderstadt Center. To celebrate Halloween, we have a "Things That Go Bump in the Night" display to show off some of our spookier graphic novel and art books. We also have a new graphic novels display highlighting Disney characters and stories.

Filling in our Assassin's Creed Collection

Assassin's Creed

A professor teaching a class this semester that frequently meets in the CVGA has been making good use of our Assassin's Creed games in his class, so we've decided to fill in our collection, purchasing some Assassin's Creed titles that haven't been as highly requested in the CVGA, but still add to the series.

New Games and a Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch

The CVGA has quite a few new games available for play. We also have a Nintendo Switch available, with several games to go with it. Did you know that there's an RSS feed on our main page that lists all games that were recently added to our collection? Check out our main page for more details.
