After 28 years of working as the Reference Services Coordinator, professor, and liaison to the Business program, Connie Anderson-Cohoon retires this week. She leaves behind her a history of dedicated service to the library and the students of Southern Oregon University.

“What I love most are the students and learning something new every single day. I will miss the ebb and flow of the academic year and my amazing colleagues” said Connie.

Every day here at Hannon, Connie has shown students and colleagues how much she cares with her tireless efforts, reliable commitment, and, best of all, her bright smiles. She has been a dear friend to many, and we’ll miss her.

So we wish you a happy retirement, Connie, and remember that your smile will always be welcome here at the library.

The groundhog’s not scared anymore, the college kids are gossiping about their week in Cancun, and you’re seeing people in shorts and t-shirts for the first time in months. Spring has finally sprung into Southern Oregon, and we’re excited about it here at Hannon Library

With the coming of warmer weather, the Meese Terrace on the third floor is now open for daytime use. With great views of the campus, the Terrace is the perfect spot to make the most of spring. Anyone is welcome to enjoy the space, so come on out and enjoy the sun while you’re eating lunch, reading books, or even napping under a colorful umbrella.
