Guess where I'll be tonight?

If your guess was, "The Reinhardt College Library," you'd be right. But not the Hill Freeman Library & Spruill Learning Center in Waleska, Georgia. I'll be at the library at our North Fulton Center.

The North Fulton Center library is open at all times when the building is open (9am-9 pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-1pm on Friday). Physically it's a much smaller location, with only about 1,000 volumes on the shelves, but in fact its collection is much larger. That's because any book, media, article or journal in Reinhardt's catalog, even if it's at the Waleska location, can be requested and sent to North Fulton. All you have to do is complete this form, and a librarian will be in contact. In fact, all library services--circulation, reserves, interlibrary loan, reference and library instruction--are available to students, faculty and staff of the North Fulton Center.

The North Fulton library is a particularly good place to find up-to-date business reference materials, as many of the MBA classes are taught at the center. Just as books from the Waleska location can be requested by North Fulton students, Waleska students can also request North Fulton materials. Items requested from one location can often be delivered to the other within 2-4 days, depending on availability of materials and the delivery schedule. In addition, North Fulton students have access to thousands of full-text journals, reference books and e-books through our electronic resources and Galileo.

The North Fulton library is staffed on Wednesday and Thursday nights from about 5-9 pm, but you can check out books at any time by taking them to the North Fulton front desk. Phyllis and Donna have graciously agreed to perform circulation duties for us, and we're very grateful for all their help!

Reinhardt College's North Fulton Center is located at 4100 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta. The library phone number is 770-720-5931.

I'll see you at North Fulton!
