Join us for the Roland Library Dedication
on Friday, April 27th!

Just a little over a year after breaking ground, Hannibal-LaGrange University will hold a dedication ceremony for the Roland Library. The event will take place at 10:00 am on Friday, April 27th in front of the new library on the HLGU campus. Everyone is invited to attend the dedication ceremony, reception, and tour the new facility. Individuals may also choose to join students and staff in a human chain to move the first one hundred books.

In addition, volunteers are needed to help move the collection from one building to the other on May 12, 18, & 19 starting at 8:30 am. Contact Julie Andresen at (573) 629-3130 for more information.

The new 20,000 sq. ft. library is named in honor of Dr. E. Earl Roland. Dr. Roland is a 1941 graduate of Hannibal-LaGrange and a long-time supporter of the University. Amenities of the new handicapped-accessible library facility include a multimedia-equipped computer classroom, computer lab, private and group study rooms, audio and video editing stations, a coffee corner and fireplace lounge, children's reading area, and added space for expanded print and audiovisual collections.

Helpful Hints from HLGU Career Services
"What is that in your hand?"

Good news! March 15, 2012, U. S. Labor Department reported a drop in state unemployment benefits by 14,000. (U.S. Department of Labor, 2012) It appears the economy is improving and unemployment claims are reverting back to numbers reached four years ago. Are you unemployed? Do you feel like throwing up your hands or throwing in the towel? I encourage you to look up, within, about, and around. In Exodus 4:4, God said to Moses, "What is that in your hand?" (NIV)

Here are a few "handy" considerations

1. Advertisements - Local papers, bulletin boards, etc.
2. Online resources, such as
3. Employer websites
4. Trainee or paid internships
5. Career fairs – HLGU is a consortium member of Gateway Career Services Association and Missouri Jobs for Educators (MOJOE)
