UPDATE: Libraries' Food & Drink Policy

Over the summer, the Libraries announced a ban on food and drink.  In response to feedback, the policy will be relaxed to allow drinks in spill-proof containers and small quantities of snacks in GL and HL.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this work.  Please be considerate of others and dispose of things responsibly!  NOTE: The NO FOOD policy will remain in effect for the Tech Hub @ GL and at the Engineering Library.

SNEAK PEEK: The Hub @ Green Library

Here's your official sneak peek to the Hub @ Green Library!  Construction is just about complete, the paint is up on the walls, carpeting is down, and the furniture is starting to get installed.  The space will be available and open to the University community in the coming weeks, but until then check out these before and during construction pics.  ENJOY!
