Harold Andersen Library (HAL) is open for fall semester hours now. The Food for Thought Cafe is open M-Th 9:30am-2pm & 4:30pm-6:30pm, and F 9:30am-2pm. Staff & students should notice quite a few changes, including:
- 2nd floor (entrance level): a new arrangement of soft chairs, computers, and tables for laptops or group work dispersed around the room; racks of selected current magazine issues & newspapers; group study spaces & rooms; and browsing collections of DVDs, VHS, CDs, graphic novels, audio books, recent fiction & nonfiction books, and video/computer games. Coming soon: A gaming room with Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation consoles.
- 3rd floor: quiet study space, individual study rooms, more computers.
- 1st floor: quiet study space, two collaboratories (reserve through Circulation at 472-5511), more computers, and the new home of the University Archives/ Area Research Center/ Special Collections.
We’ll be adding new soft seating. YOU are asked to vote for your favorite fabric! See the samples on display beside the student message board just inside the Library entrance.
We also are trying a continuous book sale. Each month the selection for sale will feature a genre, subject, or format.
