Beat the Heat




It's going to be a hot summer, but Kimbel Library has got you covered. Beat the heat by relaxing in our soft seating areas, where we have a large selection of magazines and newspapers in our collection along with the thousands of books upstairs. 


You can watch a movie or listen to music on one of our many desktop computers by checking out any of our wide selection of DVDs and CDs. Or why not check out a laptop and take it to a cool, quiet spot to relax? 


And of course we have high-speed ethernet and wi-fi connections on all of our machines, so after surfing at the beach you can surf the internet and unwind!

New Research Guides



Kimbel Library has migrated to a new version of the research guides platform. This new version takes advantage of many new functions:

  • Fully-responsive platform, automatically changing the resolution to make for the best experience in tablets and mobile devices;
  • A robust API to allow representation of guide information in different systems; 
  • Increased accessibility features and functionality; 
  • More modern look and feel; 
  • Side menus, which mimic our library webpages and make for a more consistent navigation through the system; 
  • A slew of back-end features that will allow the library to save time making and sharing guides so we can increase our focus on guide content.

De-Stress Fest


April 30 to May 7 Kimbel Library invites students to enjoy De-Stress Fest. 

Activities include a giant Jenga game, puzzles, checkers, giant word searches, Sudoku and coloring throughout the library. Students will also be able to send a post card home, letting parents know that they miss them, will see them soon, and that they have been studying hard all week. Earplugs will be available at the circulation desk for students to make their own “silent study” space. Students can make a stress ball Sunday, May 3 and Tuesday, April 5 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Library staff will be serving snacks to students studying in the late night hours throughout the week.


For more information, please contact Christi Rippy, access services specialist, at 843-349-2400.
