Take a study break with friends and play one (or a few!) of the games available at Himmelfarb Library!


The following games are available: Balderdash, Blokus, Chess, Mancala,
Operation, Scrabble, and Sorry.

Pick up the games at the circulation desk and check them out so you can take them down the hall to the student lounge.

Don't forget that we also have our exercise equipment and kits available from the Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb initiative, including fitness balls and hula hoops.

Get into the giving spirit with Himmelfarb Library! We will be having a Food for Fines collection drive from now until December 21. Here are the guidelines:


  • One dollar in current library fines will be removed from your library record for every canned good or non-perishable food item that is donated. Healthy selections are encouraged.
  • All items will be donated to Bread for the City, a local non-profit organization serving low-income residents of D.C.
  • A maximum of $20.00 in fines will be waived per person.
  • Only fines can be removed, not item replacement fees.
  • We cannot accept opened packages or items with expired dates.
  • You may donate food items even if you don't have fines. We will not accept monetary donations. For monetary donations, please contact Bread for the City directly.
