Get comfy

October 1, 2015

Window wellIf those old, red chairs made you blue, we have good news for you! In response to last spring’s library survey, we have been working to make the library a more comfortable space for study, research and reflection. Over the summer we replaced many old chairs with new ones; they have wheels and an extra inch of foam for long-term comfort. We also created two new window well spaces for cozy study timeNew chairs, with pillows and reading lamps. And we added new, large whiteboards to the group study rooms.

A big thank you to all of you who responded to last years’ survey. Please keep the suggestions coming — we are listening!
