“They’re Like Individual Fortresses!”

New Carrels September 2011 - ch That’s what one library user said when she first noticed our brand new study carrels on the second floor. They do offer the privacy of a miniature fortress, but you won’t have to cross a moat to reach them. They’re open, airy and comfortable, with new high quality adjustable chairs. Each of the twenty carrels is individually lighted and features four electrical outlets so you can plug in at will. These carrels are non-reserve and may be used on a first-come, first-seated basis. We hope you will enjoy them!
