Lehman Library Renovations

Lehman Library made some significant changes during Summer 2007. The space known previously as the Reference Room was converted to a group study room that includes new carpet, electrical outlets, blackboards, and wall-mounted monitors.

The West Reading Room that had been so dark now has been enhanced with improved lighting along with new carpet, additional seating, and electrical and network connections.
