The renovations will involve the lower-level southwest corner and the exterior façade of that corner of the building. It is circled in the image to the right.
We envision the façade looking something like the pen and ink drawing below. This drawing reflects the landscaping and pathing changes that are part of the Marshall Hall renovation project.
The interior space of the building as of 2022 is pictured below. The outlined area is the focus of this phase of the construction.
A concept of what the interior layout could look like is below. This demonstrates how it would connect to the landscaping that will be created as part of the Marshall Hall renovation project.
In response to student requests, we created an area with both flexible seating and collaborative stations.
Renovated the lower level to create the Academic Success Center and for the first time co-located these services in one location. As part of this renovation, reservable small-group study rooms were created.
The main entrance and lobby area of the library was renovated based on student input (surveys like this one) and framed by design best-practices to create more space for students to congregate and meet casually, create additional seating with lots of natural light, and create the Café @ Moon.
We have updated the furniture and furnishings based on student input.
We have added “Zenbooth” – sound dampened individual study spaces.
