On the east side of the 5th floor of the library (nearest to 4th Street) is the East Reading Room. Last week several bookcases and display shelves and journals and furniture were moved to create a new reading room for the library. There are also electrical outlets at the base of the windows. Doesn’t it look inviting?
The current periodical shelving was dismantled and moved to the East Reading Room so that everyone now has a comfortable place to sit and read their favorite journal, magazine or newspaper.
The law library also plans to continue hosting professors speaking on their favorite topics during monthly Coffee Talks. In the coming weeks, the fiction collection and the leadership book collections will also be relocated to this area of the library.
Thanks to everyone who helped create this great space over the past few weeks.
