Our library at The Heights Building provides materials to students from two programs:  H-B Woodlawn and the Shriver Program. Our gorgeous new library has several learning spaces for instruction in information literacy skills as well as the enjoyment of pleasure reading.


It won’t take long for you to see where books are shelved in our library.  Does this map help?

Sublocations that correspond to library call numbers are labeled to show order of books on shelves.
Heights Library Sublocations. Look for color coding at the tops of the shelves as you browse.

Can you guess where each call number is shelved?  Hint:  look at the top and the bottom of each spine label that appears in the picture below!
