Plymouth State University Library Expands Access for Local Residents

December 4th, 2006 by Adam

Plymouth and Holderness residents now have full access to PSU’s Lamson Library, including public access computer workstations and thousands of books, digital files and technological resources. Library Director David Berona has waived the $10.00 annual fee for residents of those two towns, in an effort to provide easier access to the Lamson Library.

“I’m a strong proponent of collaborations, and this is a viable means to collaborate with our neighbors,” said Berona. “By waiving the fee, Plymouth and Holderness residents now have free access to our 12 public computers and all of the data bases and digital technology.”

Plymouth State President Dr. Sara Jayne Steen believes the free access further strengthens PSU’s commitment to partnering with the local community.

“As a regional University, we collect and house a tremendous amount of information. Waiving the access fee for residents of Plymouth and Holderness allows members of our communities free access to a vast array of knowledge,” Steen said.

Berona points out that Lamson Library and the town owned Pease Memorial Library complement each other in their offerings, and the free access offered to PSU’s neighbors only strengthens the ongoing collaboration between the two libraries.

“Pease has always had a strong children’s and fiction collection, while Lamson offers academic, historical and technological resources, so this latest effort to encourage the public to use our facility makes the connection and collaboration between the University and towns even stronger,” Berona said.
