Libraries Offer Recharging Stations

July 15, 2013

The University Libraries now offer convenient recharging stations throughout Dunbar Library. Three charging stations are located in public areas:

  • 1st-floor Group Study Room, pillar left of Café Wright
  • 2nd-floor Reference Area, near the Information Desk
  • 2nd-floor Media Room, near the photocopiers

The stations have multiple tips to accommodate most cell phones. iPhone 5 Lightning tips area available for check-out from the Circulation Desk that can then be used to charge on the Charging Stations.

Individual chargers can also be checked out from the Circulation Desk for use throughout the building – just plug it into the nearest electrical outlet and recharge while studying.

Last but not least, individual chargers are also available for use within the Student Technology Assistance Center (STAC) while you work on multimedia projects.

The Libraries recommend that you please watch your phones and/or devices while recharging. The Libraries are not responsible for lost or stolen belongings.

So don’t run down and charge ahead while in the University Libraries.

Help select the 2014-2015 Common Text

Help the Wright State University Common Text Committee select the 2014-2015 common text!

Remember library summer reading programs? Here is your chance to bring back the fun, help the common text committee select the 2014-15 book, and be entered in a drawing to win great prizes, including a $25 Barnes & Noble Bookstore gift card!

The common text committee read more than twenty selections recommended by members of the University community, and decided upon four finalists.

They are:

One Amazing Thing by Chitra Divakaruni,

The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway,

Good Kings, Bad Kings by Susan Nussbaum

and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

You have between now and Sunday, August 25, 2012 to read the books and complete a brief survey.  We will send reminders throughout the summer.  Please wait until you have completed as much reading as you are able to do and then fill out the survey at

These books are (or will be very soon!) widely available at the WSU bookstore (20% off with your faculty/staff ID), local book stores, and your public library.  Using your WSU account, you can also request them to be sent here through OhioLink and Search Ohio. All four titles are on 7-day reserve (filed under “Common Text”) at the Dunbar Library circulation desk, as well.

Thank you for being part of the common text selection process.

Happy Reading-

Maureen Barry, Catherine Queener, and Vaughn Shannon
