Alexandria Campus Celebrates a New Look

Thanks to the generosity of former Alexandria Provost Jean C. Netherton the Alexandria Campus Library was able to replace the existing chairs in student study spaces:

Yes, the old chairs pictured above were literally held together with duct tape, so the new furniture was a very welcome addition.

Thanks to the Jean C. Netherton Memorial Trust the Library was able to completely re-furnish the most heavily-used student spaces (and with over 170,000 visits made to the Library every semester they take a lot of wear and tear!).

In addition to all new lounge chairs in the Library "living room," (above) the Quiet Study Space got new chairs with tablet arms to acccommodate laptops and devices -- as well as books!! (see below

Finally, the Library Instructional Space also got a makeover with new chairs for students learning the finer points of library resarch (below):

Replacing the worn-out, uncomfortabe furniture was a request from the Student Government Association on behalf of all Library users.  Thanks to the Jean C. Netherton Trust for making one of the most heavily-used student spaces on campus conducive to learning and success.
