Welcome Back to a More Welcoming Library!

New seats in the University Library

During the summer months we’ve made some changes to the library to make it an even better place for study, collaboration, and relaxation. Here’s what’s new:

  • More electrical outlets have been installed throughout the building at a convenient table height to help save those laptop batteries
  • Eco-friendly, all weather teak chairs and umbrella tables along both sides of the entrance concourse provide an additional space for Starbucks customers and others to congregate
  • The library’s butcher block study tables and carrels have been refinished and modified for a richer, more contemporary look
  • Take a comfortable seat next to one of the “wired” round tables next to the windows and enjoy an incomparable view of the Pyramid from the 5th or 4th floor study area
  • The improved environment even extends to new and distinctive trash containers and new end panels in the book stacks
