Bellatrix was founded by friends who had been sharing a box of fantasy and sci-fi books, and wanted to be able to share them with other members of the Mount Holyoke community. This founding box has grown into our own small library, now housed in the basement of Wilder. It is a collection of anime, sci-fi, and fantasy works, including books, movies, manga, comics, games, and tv series, open to anyone with a Five Colleges ID. A full catalog of the library's contents is now available online courtesy of Becky, former Information Guru and Time Lady.
The library is usually open from 12 pm to 6 pm every Saturday. Emails will be sent out every Saturday as a reminder, and will note if the times are different.
The library is located in the basement of Wilder Hall. Many people have had trouble finding it, so here are some directions: Take the elevator on the first floor of Wilder down to the basement. You will come out near a vending machine. Across from that is a door, the Bellatrix Library. When the door is open, that means that the library is open. When it is closed, the library is closed. If you still can't find it, contact one of our lovely librarians or other officers, and we will gladly show you the way.
