Love our new chairs!

Such a nice comment!  The dark blue chairs are not new, but the new upholstery sure makes them look that way.  Help us keep them nice - food and drink belong on your plate, in your stomach, or in a covered cup.  If you like them, tell us!  We hope to do more soon.

This came in earlier today...

"It is too hot in this library. It is physically a challenge to be functional here." 

We do apologize for the uncomfortable environment.  Believe me, my office is in the Information Commons and I feel it too.  Facilities was notified of the issue and the chillers seem to be working as of 2:45 pm today (4/11/17).  However, given the size of the building, it will take them awhile to be really effective. Meanwhile, your best bet for studying in the Athenaeum is to move away from the windows, find an interior space.  As we move from one season to the next, especially in this crazy weather we will experience odd days here in the Ath!
