We are excited to let you know that our furniture is back, and you can once again hang out in the Teen Area (with masks, if you are not fully vaccinated yet). There is a work table near the outlets, plenty of seating, and a nice view out the windows. We did move the books around, so if you have any questions, please ask! For a limited time we are sharing book space with Children's due to flooding in the room downstairs, but we have some more fun changes planned in the coming months! Visit Nicole or Colleen at the Reference Desk to say hi or ask for research assistance or book recommendations anytime.
