The Great Shake Out
Feb. 7, 2012
Wherever you are today,
think about what you would do
if there was an earthquake…
Drop to your hands and knees (trying to walk could cause you to fall)
Cover your head and neck and take cover under a sturdy desk or table
(and away from the book stacks and things that could fall on you)
Hold on firmly, move with your cover until the shaking stops
This winter is the 200th anniversary of the New Madrid Earthquake of 1811-1812, centered near the Bootheel region of southwest Missouri and felt from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada.

The James C. Kirkpatrick library offers tours of the library early each semester. Tours not only let us show off our building – after a tour you will have a good idea where library services are located, and know who will help when you have a question or problem with your research. Tours are an excellent introduction to the JCKL library. Come join us!
Tours meet just inside the west doors (front entrance).
The library will conduct tours of its facilities, services, and resources on these dates and times:
Why wait til April? The Kirkpatrick Library now has the following forms available on the first floor near the circulation desk.
