Recently the Library revised its Food and Drink policy to allow snack foods to be eaten in the building. The only exceptions are while visiting the Special Collections unit or while using materials from locked collections in the Youth Collection, Art and Music Collection, and maps collection.
Can you bring in that delectable steak for a late night protein boost? Probably not. But you can snack on some nuts and dried fruits instead.

Thursday, September 30th, UNI Physical Plant personnel will begin adding additional electrical outlets to the north end of the east wall on the first floor. Currently only one outlet is available along this portion of the wall. At the end of the project up to 11 outlets will be usable near the new bench furniture and a bit further south down the wall.
Looking for a comfortable place to study in the Library? Check out the new booth seating for your next group meeting or personal study time. This seating area is found on the bottom floor of the building in the northeast corner, near the Current Periodicals. The half-circle booths can accomodate as many as 7 or 8 people at one time. This semester we hope to install more electrical outlets along this wall for laptops. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
