Legacy Library Introduces Our New Study Nooks

If you haven't stopped by the Legacy Library recently, please come and look at the improvements we made over winter break.

During the Christmas/New Year's Break 2017-18, the library underwent some renovations to create some new individual study nooks. Located on the main floor to either side of the Reference Collection are nine new study nooks. Each study nook features a comfortable task chair selected with student input, as well as a generously sized work surface with task light and power outlets (including USB connections for phone charging). In addition to the new study nooks, we also added two additional study tables in the area behind the reference books.

We also reduced the footprint of the Reference Desk to enlarge the area devoted to the printer/photocopiers and added a counter for staplers and hole punches to make this area more useful.
