We are excited to begin the new semester and hope you find plenty of reasons to visit us over the course of the year. Whether you need a quiet study space (Library 3rd floor), are meeting a group (2nd and 4th floors), or want to relax with your laptop in an overstuffed chair (Library 1st floor), we have what you need. And while you're on the first floor, be sure and visit our new coffee machine and try out a cup of Starbucks coffee or a latte.
