The Libraries welcomes all new and returning students to the start of the fall 2019 semester! Look for our friendly librarians throughout Wolfpack Welcome Week as we help you get acquainted with our many services, events, workshops, and technologies.

Visit our Libraries Information Booths in both the Hill and Hunt Libraries on Aug. 20, 21, 22 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Librarians will be on hand to introduce you to essential services and spaces provided by the Libraries and to help you connect your devices to the wireless network. We will also be printing student schedules for free!

Our Libraries Welcome Week Scavenger Hunt is on Snapchat @ncsulibraries! Scattered around both Hill and Hunt Libraries are hidden Snapcodes. Scan them to reveal custom experiences that showcase different features of the Libraries. The first 25 students to track down all seven in either library win a prize. Send us your Snaps to submit your answers!
