The renovation is underway!

 

 

The library’s second floor enhancement is in full swing! For those of you who are away from campus for the summer, here are some sneak previews of what the second floor of the library will look like upon your return.

As more students turn to the library as space for their diverse academic endeavors, this new innovative furniture will allow the students to make the most of this flexible space while working on collaborative projects and group study sessions. Scroll through the pictures below to see some of the different furniture types that now occupy the second floor.

These exciting improvements have been made possible by a generous gift from John and Ruanne Opie.
