The library has added new furniture and other upgrades on the second and fifth floors.
Changes await you at the HS/HSL with an exciting new look for the library’s second and fifth floors. The second floor now has all new tables with power, comfortable rolling chairs, study banquettes, and new carpeting. You can find the new furniture throughout the second floor, including the tower, some study rooms, and in the area above the Information Services desk. The library’s second floor is currently open.
The fifth floor has long been a destination for quiet study. Now, the area overlooking the Ravens' M&T Bank Stadium and Oriole Park at Camden Yards has new tables, all with power and enhanced lighting. A new study area on the east side of the building features individual study pods and informal, round tables. Fifth-floor study room tables have been upgraded, and comfortable rolling chairs have been added throughout the floor. We look forward to seeing you on the library’s fifth floor once the library fully reopens.
Plans for the building furniture refresh have been in the works for nearly two years — starting with a survey that gauged students’ preferences for functional furniture and optimal study spaces.
We hope you enjoy the new furniture and upgrades!
