Welcome back! If you've visited the library since returning to campus, you will have noticed some changes.

Over the summer, thanks to the generosity of donors to an endowed fund and the hard work of Plant & Properties, we were able to transform the former Media Room (where the printer used to be; now called the Simmons Room) into a beautiful reading room that invites quiet study and reflection.

The computers moved to the back area of the library, which is now set up for collaboration and group work.

We've also carved out a little Makerspace across from the Reference Desk, with 2D and 3D printing as well as a large work table.

The classroom has been painted an invigorating blue, and IT added classroom projectors to both the classroom and the open learning space in the back of the reference room (which we're calling the Wayback).

Classroom. So blue!

We hope that you'll find a place in the library that's right for you as you set out to study, read, research, work on projects, or put your creative powers to work.
