Temporary Library Building Access - Summer 2020

We are excited to announce that Phase II of the Library building renovations will begin June 18, 2020. To facilitate safe and easy access to the Library’s collections and the Media Center, our offices will not be open to the campus community or the public. Instead, we will be offering curbside pickup for materials.

For Library Access:

  • Please call us at (330)-569-5489 or email us at library@hiram.edu. We will work with you to schedule a time to pick up your materials. Students and staff on campus may request to have materials checked out and sent via campus mail.
  • You may also contact us to schedule a time to browse the shelves or use our materials in house.
  • Our phones and email will be staffed between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, but our schedule for pickup will vary as we work to determine what is safest for our visitors.
  • To return materials, you may place them in the bin inside the library's front doors (accessible 24/7), you may request a time to return materials via curbside service, or students and staff on campus may return materials via campus mail.

For Media Center access:

  • Media Services operations and front desk support are temporarily located at the Dray Computer Center.
  • If you have a need or a request for service, you can contact Marc Freeman at 569-5010, freemanma@hiram.edu, or the support desk at 569-5360, instech@hiram.edu.
