Welcome back! In returning to the library, you may have noticed that our furniture has been rearranged. This reconfiguration was in response to consistent complaints about noise and, conversely, the loss of "talking" space in the library. On the ground floor of the library, the carrels from the main reading room(next to the reference and circulation desks) have been swapped with the tables in the periodicals room and classified stacks.
Since tables usually encourage discussion, the main study room will become a new "talking" area. All other areas on the ground floor will be designated quiet areas, and the placement of the carrels should discourage extended discussions. We have requested that additional power outlets be installed under the tables in the main reading room. Happy studying!
