Spring is in the Air!

Images of the items available in the Imaginarium. Tables, Cricut, chairs. Are you an education major looking for materials to use on a project, lesson plan, or in the classroom? If your answer is yes, then the Imaginarium is the place for you! Here, we have a variety of materials such as a di-cut machine with many different di-cut stencils, a paper cutter, and construction paper. You can also use this space to work on group projects, plan lessons, and study for your education classes!

This semester, Carmen Fisher-Olvera and Alison Gleason will be the people to go to should you need assistance with a lesson plan or a project. Alison will be holding her office hours in the Imaginarium on Thursdays from 2:30-4:00 pm. Carmen’s office hours will be Tuesdays from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

The Imaginarium is open all hours that the library is open. Stop by during our office hours should you need assistance with anything!

Best of luck this semester,

Alison and Carmen
