If you managed to pop into the Regina library or the ERC over the summer, you might have noticed some changes going on. Excitingly, we have been able to complete some projects to update the spaces available to you, our community, and hopefully improve our services! Changes you will now see:
-New cafe tables by the windows in the Regina reference room
-New tables fitted with outlets and Ethernet cords for your technological convenience
-More seating and study space in the ERC, including more areas for quiet study when the main room gets boisterous
We’re so excited to have everyone back and in school mode next week! Come in and say hello!
As we head into the new semester, the hours at the library are a little wild and crazy! Always feel free to head to our hours page on the library website if you’re confused about the schedule, but since you’re here…here they are!

The most recent statistics for quality of life by state have recently come out–and New England looks like a great place to be! Do you see your home state on this list? New Hampshire came in at #9, primarily because of our low crime rate and healthy population. Sadly, we sank from the #1 spot because of a lowered air quality–what’s up with that?!
