The Best Place To Study

Beginning January 24th, the library will be open on Saturdays from 9 am - 3 pm.  Why come to the library? It's quiet – those hardcore librarians accept nothing less. It's comfortable – you can find any number of cozy chairs, table arrangements, and nooks to set up shop. It has great information access. HELLO? Books, the Internet, and people who specialize in answering your tough questions. What's not to love? The library is definitely top of the food chain in best places to study.
