The west side of the 1st floor now has additional seating options which allow visiting classes to sit together. The DVD collection was moved onto low shelving so students can see the stairway to the 2nd floor. Next to the Reference Collection in the southeast corner, space has been converted to much-needed Group Study rooms, both equipped with a whiteboard, and one with a Steelcase conference table with presentation screens. Pretty slick!
Our Meditation & Prayer Room pilot project has ended. Responding to comments for the need for a quieter space, that function has moved upstairs to the Quiet Study area in the NE corner – makes sense! We’re also delighted to have a remodeled, lockable, handicapped-accessible restroom serving all genders in that NE corner of the 2nd floor.
