Party on the Patio

Library officially opens 2nd Floor library patio on Tuesday afternoon.

by Barbara CalixteIMG_3678[1]

The library can get a little cold sometimes; the patio allows students to study outdoors while they enjoy the breeze from outside.

The patio has been opened since the beginning of the semester, but many students were unaware. The Library came up with the idea to have a party to let everyone know about the study area.

Mother Nature had her way with the rain that afternoon, but it didn’t stop the festivities.

Students, faculty and staff enjoyed food and drinks provided by Lynn’s catering staff, outdoors on the patio and inside on the second floor landing. Students seemed to appreciate the extra space now, and are happy the library made the move.
