Library of The College of St. Scholastica: Home
Welcome to the CSS Library. Please contact us if you need assistance.
Before you visit the Library ...
Due to COVID-19, there are a few changes in the Library this year. The only access to the Library is via the tunnel. The Cloister Walk between Tower Hall and the Library is closed for the safety of the Sisters. The stairwells in the Library are one-way only. The front stairwell is designated as up only, and the back stairwell as down only. Just as with classrooms and hallways, we are not allowing any food in the Library this year. Please eat your meals in the areas on campus where eating is expected. You may still bring a beverage (as long as it has a cover on it) into the Library. Thank you for your help keeping the CSS community safe!

Julie Schumacher's talk on Satire and the Campus Novel was a hit, with over 60 quests laughing out loud and perhaps some even catching a glimpse of themselves in her words! ;) If you missed it, watch the recording here. Our thanks to Professor Schumacher and to the English Department which co-sponsored this event with the Library.
The Twa Corbies
Ravens are magical birds in real life & in myth. Librarian Brad Snelling captured this image of a pair of ravens (Twa Corbies, for you Scots) taking in the sun on the South Tower. Visit our guide A Catalog of Birds to learn more about the 118 species of birds on campus, a list than began in the early 1980s with Sr. Donna Schroeder and her biology students.
