McIntyre Library Instructional Materials Center Open House Set for Feb. 8

RELEASED: Jan. 31, 2006

IMC at McIntyre LibraryEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's McIntyre Library will host an open house for the university community and area educators to celebrate the completion of the move and renovation of its Instructional Media Center.

The open house is slated for 3:30-6 p.m. Feb. 8 in the newly remodeled IMC, located in the lower level of McIntyre Library. At 5 p.m., based on his book, "Something Funny Happened at the Library," UW-Eau Claire lecturer, author and performer Rob Reid will discuss using humor in the library.

The free event is open to the public. Visitors can browse, review materials and ask questions. Community members can get a library card to check out materials with a one-time $10 deposit, which is refundable when the card is turned in.

The IMC moved from its second floor location to its new space this past fall after nearly two years of planning. The new location includes a colorful lounge area, listening and viewing rooms for group projects, multimedia study carrels and general study space.

The IMC, primarily used by College of Education and Human Services faculty and students, houses the library's collections of K-12 juvenile books, K-12 textbooks, videos, multimedia (puppets, educational games, teaching aids), audiotapes, pictures (posters, maps, art reproductions), teacher magazines, and teacher professional materials. Almost 25 percent of McIntyre's library's checkouts are from the IMC collections.

Visitors who arrive before 4 p.m. can park in the Visitor Center on Roosevelt Avenue. After 4 p.m., guests can park in any university parking lot, except in the rows marked "GF."

For more information, contact Becky Wojahn, education reference librarian, at (715) 836-4522 or wojahnrh@uwec.edu.
