What’s new this Spring?

They Asked, We Delivered!

Best Sellers Collection

We added comfy new bean bag chairs in our Best Sellers section. The bean bag chairs were suggested by the students on the Student Library Wish List board displayed during the Fall semester. A couple of students who tested the chairs commented that the bean bag chairs will be their reason to come into the library to study!
