The Library Media Center is Trinity's research and collaboration hub. It is a state-of-the-art facility with numerous resources and services at our students' disposal. The library is staffed by two full-time Library Media Specialists, student volunteers, and a Student Library Advisory Board.
The library is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., except on Wednesdays when it opens at 8:30 a.m. and on Fridays when it closes at 3 p.m.
To make an Advising appointment, students must sign up in the library earlier in the day, with spots limited to the first 30-40 students. Students may not sign out other students and are expected to keep their volume at a respectable level for other students, as Advising is a high-usage time.
