Students at Reynolds Libraries are taking a holistic approach to their studies. Not only do they exercise their minds with the many resources the library has to offer, they exercise their bodies using the FitDesk stationary bike, found at both the Goochland and Parham Road locations.
Regular exercise not only enhances brain health, but working out before or after a study session awakens your mind and helps you retain information longer, potentially giving your test scores a welcome boost, according to the Scientific American.
So what are you waiting for? It’s science, ya’ll.
We are excited to officially launch our updated website! After receiving feedback from students, faculty, and staff, the library site was updated to create a better user experience.
The new site makes navigating easier by having a persistent menu bar with all library links available no matter where you are on the site:
We’ve also incorporated a prominent search box area that allows you to customize your catalog search based on what type of resource you are seeking – including Textbook Reserves. Additionally, you can now easily browse Popular/Best sellers, DVDs, and recently added books to the collection:
Library Workshops and Events are now prominently listed on the new library homepage as well as the most recent social media posts:
Some more exciting things to look forward to in the near future: more video guides/tutorials and an improved look for our Research Guides that will integrate more seamlessly with the rest of the website.
Please be aware that if you had previously bookmarked any links to specific library pages, you will need to update those to reflect the new URLs. Otherwise, you may receive a “404” error page. If you have any trouble finding a particular resource, have questions, or would like to provide any additional feedback, don’t hesitate to reach us by phone, email, or in person.
The year 1969 was a big one for the US, pop-culture, and news. It was the year of the first moon landing, Woodstock, and of course the first ever episode of TV’s The Brady Bunch, just to name a few.
If you have a chance, stop by the Parham library where we have set up a display in honor of this iconic year.
If you simply can’t wait, take a minute to check out our 1969 Spotify Playlist which includes many popular songs from the day. It is sure to inspire nostalgia and will definitely get your feet tapping. (Perhaps they’ll tap all the way over to the library?)
LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn staged an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which LGBTQ Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ Americans.
