ducttaperosesAre you stuck on someone? Or is there someone who you want to be stuck on you?

Visit the 2nd floor of the Library on Wednesday February 11 from 11am – noon or from 6:00 – 7:00pm and make a rose for your love!

These roses are sustainable – they’re made of duct-tape so they never die!

Supplies will be provided, and directions about how to make the rose will be provided as well! No previous experience necessary!

What’s Happening at the Library in February?

Calendar - February 2015

Therapy Dog on Thursday Afternoon

Our therapy dog friend is coming for another visit to the UTC Library!

Our good friends from the UT College of Veterinary Medicine’s H.A.B.I.T. (Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee) program are bringing a therapy dog for visits.

Research shows the benefits of spending time with an animal – even a short visit has positive effects – and the UTC Library wants to help give you these benefits this semester.

  • Thursday, February 5, 1:00 to 2:30pm

Students, faculty and staff are all invited to meet our furry guest!

As always, the certified therapy dog will be accompanied by a trained handler.  And if you prefer not to be near the dog for any reason, simply avoid the dedicated section of the first floor of the library – an alcove by the Chamberlain pavilion windows on the first floor (turn right as you enter through the Chamberlain doors and follow the signs).

For more information on the H.A.B.I.T. program, visit the UT site at

Hope to see you there!
