When we tell you who's been here, what they do, why they were important to us and make it a very important part of our school. Just because he did so much. He was the Lincoln Douglas debate here, you see? Not college you came here to talk about, You know, like what he could do for little noise. And what do you do for slavery, Stuff like that?

Like when I was here most of the time, I well, to the reference desk and I'll talk to the library in our duty and basically just get help from them and then I'll put on my paper and go to class. I'm the books in here are amazing. Checking out the books are very simple. You can go online and do that. And basically, what happens with that is that you know, you just put a your log in or like you're you're logging into your mind. Knock sickle and you just look for the book you of want. If they got it, you can go to the library to pick it up. If they don't and another school has it.
