If you have ever wanted to learn how to play chess now’s your chance. This Friday, Feb. 8, from 12 PM to 4 PM, Gabert Library staff and some students will teach you the moves, strategies, and afterwards have a one-on-one competition! No prizes will be given out but you will be able to learn how to play one of the greatest table top games of all time!
Whether you agree with Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of winter or you’re on Staten Island Chuck’s team, Groundhog Day will surely let us know if spring is around the corner or we have to endure more of winter’s brutal wind.
The Library nor HCCC does not have a groundhog (if we had one we’ll need to run a contest for a name) but we do have the 1993 comedy film Groundhog Day which is just as good! We will be showing the film in the Gabert Library Makerspace on Friday, Feb. 1 from 11 AM to 4 PM and all day Saturday, Feb. 2.
All are welcome to come! Happy Groundhog Day!
The Library welcomes new and incoming students to the Spring 2019 semester! To kick off our Library activities for this spring, we want to introduce you guys to our Librarian, James Cox, who also heads our Makerspace and other events in the Library. He will be welcoming students from Jan. 28 to Jan. 21 at the Gabert Library.
So if you have any questions regarding the Library and our events, stop on by and give James a handshake!
Student Activities and the Library would like to invite you for a late afternoon yoga session from 4-6 PM on Monday, Dec. 17. The session will be hosted and taught by our College Archivist, Alex Plante. It will be our last event in the Library before we take a break for the holiday season. And for students, this will be a time for you guys to relax after final exam week and before the chaos of last minute holiday shopping starts!
We hope to see you there! See the flyer below for more information.
Our last Kids @ Makerspace event is this Saturday, Dec. 8 from 2 PM to 4 PM. It will be a holiday themed arts and crafts that your kids can create. Ornaments, paper snowflakes, coloring, whatever the case may be!
Open to all HCCC students, faculty, and staff and their kids. If you’re a kid at heart, you are welcome to join, too!
