Joan Lippincott and Sarah Watstein came to talk to us in the library this past semester about learning spaces. We were shown photos of a variety of library spaces in a wide range of places. I was particularly inspired by a picture of a picnic table tucked under a chalkboard in a friendly outdoor nook. And I thought, "we can do that."
Thanks to the quick work of our facilities staff, when you come back for the summer sessions, or even if you are not coming back until the Fall, there are new workspaces waiting for you! There are now chalkboards in the outdoor area just outside of Peets. We are lucky in Charlotte to have nearly year-round outside-friendly weather. Enjoy!
