Emergency housing options for students

The Housing Department is looking to proactively accumulate a list of local Messiah community members who would be open to housing students in the midst of an emergency. If an evacuation pushed students to leave campus, it would be helpful to know if any local persons would be willing to host a student for a short period of time. Please email housing@messiah.edu with your name, contact information, and address if you are interested in being added to this list. Thank you in advance!

Breakroom changes

With the disruption created by COVID, some changes that were implemented as part of prioritization were conflated with changes that needed to be made due to COVID. One such change is the stocking of breakrooms. As announced in 2019, the University ended it’s leasing of breakroom coffee machines and will no longer be stocking breakrooms. Likewise, department budgets are not to be allocated to stocking breakrooms. The University will continue to provide breakroom spaces and refrigerators (where feasible), but we are each responsible for our own refreshments.

Notice of Migration of Murray Library’s Integrated Library Software System
Occurring June 25-29

After 20 years with our current system, the library is moving into the cloud with Ex Libris’ Alma/Primo product. Our data will start migrating over into the new system June 9. This means that we are unable to process any purchase requests or rush processing requests for new materials after June 8.

On Friday, June 25 until Tuesday, June 29, our circulation information, including holds, interlibrary loans, fines and fees, will not be available as we move to the new system. We will be able to check materials out and you may return your items at this time, but the library catalog will not reflect this information until we go live.

During this time, the current library catalog will still be available. If you have saved lists in the library catalog, you will need to download or print them, as they will not carry over into the new system. If you have created links to materials that take you into the library catalog (NOT links into databases), those links will no longer work. Those links will have to be established again once our new system is up and running. The good news is, that in our new system, there is an easy button to copy the permalink. If you need help with this, please contact your liaison librarian.

Jigsaw Puzzle Library

Before the summer break, stock up on some puzzles! Joanna Hadley-Evans curates a robust collection of jigsaw puzzles available for swap/loan with colleagues on campus. Dozens of 300-2000 piece puzzles representing various seasons and themes are available – perfect for family time on vacation or as hot summer days require a reprieve in the air conditioning. Drop some off or take some home and return whenever you are done! Contact Joanna at jhadley@messiah.edu to arrange a time to stop by her office in Hostetter Chapel to peruse the collection.

Wanted

My wife and I are looking for a sofa and a medium size kitchen table with chairs, in decent condition. If you have either item or have any leads, please contact me at owilliams@messiah.edu. Thanks.

House/dog sitter needed. Hi Messiah Community!
I am looking for a house/dog sitter for two sweet dachshunds who are rescues so we prefer not to board. Dates are June 11-15. As far as the house-just looking for someone to take in the mail and water plants etc. The dogs are the main priority-not expecting someone to be home all day with them as we work outside the home too-they do like to snuggle in the evening. Please feel free to pass this along to students if you think it might be a good fit. I am happy to explain more about the expectations/arrangement. Please email me if you are interested hbarto@messiah.edu.
Thanks so much.

Looking for dishes and cookware. If you have spare dish sets, cookware, or cooking utensils that are in good condition, our office would be happy to put them to good use this summer for some rental units on campus. At the end of the summer, these items can be used in the campus quarantine apartments. Please contact us if you have anything to donate. Please contact jbert@messiah.edu
