Poll III: A Coffee Cart in the Library

McIntyre Library is always looking for ways to be more open and inviting, and one way that libraries across the country have enhanced their environments was through the installation of a coffee cart or cafe. This week's poll asks you whether the McIntyre Library should have a coffee cart, what hours it should be open, and what it should serve.

Thank you all so much for your feedback thus far regarding a possible library book drop on upper campus and the choice of a silent study floor. While the library book drop poll was not conclusive, the response to the silent study floor question was overwhelming. We'll be announcing the results of both polls and also which floor(s) will be silent later this week, based on your feedback.

Poll #2: Which Floors Should be Silent?

When we began the construction last year, we changed the silent study floor from fifth to fourth. Should we change it back? This week's poll asks you which floors you want to be "silent study" floors.

Black History Month Exhibit

Check out (literally) our exhibit of materials written by and about black artists, scientists and scholars on the library's first floor next to the New Book Shelf. Materials in the display are there to be borrowed. The exhibit, put together in honor of Black History Month, will be there for the entire month of February.
