Western Libraries will once again be joined by members of the “Canines & Cats on Campus” registered therapy animal program from Monday, June 3 through Wednesday, June 12.
Teams of humans and animals will be located in the gallery space at the end of the Mann Family Skybridge on the Wilson side of the library off and on between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. during both the week preceding and the week of final exams.
As part of its regular review process of library materials, Western Libraries will hold a faculty review of materials that have been identified for withdrawal from the library collection over the spring quarter. These resources are being withdrawn because they are duplicated in the library’s collections. All faculty members are welcome to review the withdrawn resources from Thursday June 6-Friday June 14, by appointment. In accordance with state law, withdrawn resources may be transferred to university departments, but cannot be given to individuals.
WTA is implementing route changes beginning Sunday, June 16.
Following public comment, public hearings and planning, WTA has made changes to address failing routes, consistently late routes, requests from riders, and the need to eliminate “food deserts” (areas with no service to grocery stores).
The following changes affect the WWU campus (all routes leave from the downtown station):
105 – serves 32nd street, replaces the 5 and 11 (eliminated), a transfer at Bill McDonald Pkwy is no longer necessary.
During the month of May, 45 Western students, faculty and staff participated on six teams in the Bike Everywhere Challenge. The combined miles ridden were 8,422 miles! Teams receive points for the number of miles ridden, number of days ridden, and for encouraging others to ride.
