The Beryl Ivey Library, together with our affiliated library partners at Western University, Huron University College, and Kings University College, is excited to introduce Omni, a search tool that will give you fast and easy access to a vast collection of diverse print and digital, high-quality, academic research resources.

Fiction Spotlight: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. n 1940, 19-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, from the fun-chasing showgirls to a sexy male actor, a grand-dame actress, a lady-killer writer, and no-nonsense stage manager. But when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Written with a powerful wisdom about human desire and connection, City of Girls is a love story like no other.
