Library Living Room

September 6th, 2010

The library has a new type of study space!  Quirky and informal, our new Library Living Room, available in Hayes 253 on the second floor of the library, offers a new way to study and learn.  Primarily for teaching classes, the room features all the Smart Classroom amenities you’re already comfortable with, such as a projection screen and laptops for students to follow along.

But when not being used for classes, there are board games and comfortable furniture for students to relax and unwind, or study in a colorful and inviting setting. 

The décor and amenities in this room were made possible with a generous donation from Peggy Hollingsworth, retired librarian from Connersville High School and an IU alumna. Her commitment to innovative learning has made this facility possible.  You can meet Peggy at our Library Living Room open house on Wed. October 6, from 11:00 am – 1:30 pm. And of course there will be refreshments!

We of course also maintain our commitment to formal instruction, and tours and class sessions will continue to be offered in the instruction room in Hayes 254.  Contact Emily Samborsky at emsambor@iue.edu or 973-8434 to schedule a library session targeted to your specific course needs.
