Second Floor Improvements Underway


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.



Computers with common CORE software will be mounted to these multi-user desks in the loft, which has 24 hour availability.
White boards, chairs and tables are all mounted on casters, and all able to move freely within the space.
More tables, more chairs and more electrical outlets are being added!
More loft furniture, geared at student collaboration.
Varieties of flexible seating options will appeal to an array of learning types.
Students showed a strong preference for rectangular tables, so that’s what we are giving them!
