Library Level 7 to close for renovation
Stack Level 7 of the Woodruff Library will close for renovation beginning May 27. On that day, workers will begin the two-week process of moving Level 7 books to the Storage Library; those books will be temporarily inaccessible during the move period.

Level 7 books include call numbers F1001 through HJ, which include anthropology, business, Canadian history, economics, geography, Latin American history and statistics.

Once Level 7 books are settled in the storage library about mid-June, requests for retrieval can be made; deliveries will be made Monday through Friday to the Woodruff Library Learning Commons, Level 3. Requesters are notified by e-mail when material arrives.

Serve up skills at tennis clinics
Learn basic and intermediate skills to play tennis at the University’s adult summer tennis clinics. The three-week sessions will be taught by head men’s tennis coach John Browning and assistant Tyson Ramsay.

Beginner clinic starts May 19 and is every Monday and Wednesday through June 4. Intermediate starts May 20 and is every Tuesday and Thursday through June 5. Both meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the varsity tennis courts.

The cost is $130 for the six clinics and each participant will receive a DVD of their strokes learned during the classes.

Weekend Scramble Camps will be held beginning May 24 into August from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tailored to the intermediate to advanced player, these are high-intensity sessions, according to Ramsay. Saturday features singles drills and Sunday doubles drills. Both include video analysis.

The cost is $50 for either the Saturday or Sunday camp or $85 for both.
