We have been living in the dust and noise of construction for the last few months and we have a few more months to go. But we do have more classrooms, labs, an auditorium and a new library to show for all that effort. We moved into our new library space on October 18 and worked in record time to have the books on the shelves and put the library in order -- the students were beating down the door to have their library back!
The new library has more shelving -- this is a good thing in times when libraries are contracting rather than expanding; study carrels; a computer lab that is enclosed; a group study room; an expanded reference/circulation desk where two people can work in comfort; and a new office for the library director.
If anyone is in the Short Pump area and would like to stop in, we would be happy to show you around!
