Cool article about the new wave of college libraries, where they serve as the "third space" — a combination of learning and living, studying and socializing. While old time libraries were all about the books, new libraries are all about the people. Space for resources is still important, but modern library services put people at the center of our universe and go from there.
Although we do not yet have a coffee bar, the LRC has had some cosmetic and design upgrades over the summer. Let’s hope you all think it contributes to our goal of being your "third space" here on campus. If we can make it better, let us know.
Returning students, welcome back! New students, we can’t wait to meet you!
