Today’s focus: the Learning Commons Lounge

Learning Commons Lounge

Learning Commons Lounge, Falvey Memorial Library

 

A secluded forum in the Library is the lounge located on the second floor in the Learning Commons in Falvey, near Learning Support Services, across from Room 202. When this public area opened in 2012, it was described as “the new lounge space with funky furniture and cafe lighting.”

Given its out-of-the-way location on Falvey’s second floor, even though it is a public event space as a part of the Learning Commons, it is “a neat little comfortable back corner where thoughts can brew and be blended.” It is occasionally used as a venue for casual events hosted by the Library.
This past year’s events include the “Coffee Break” series sponsored by the English department and a series of book discussions by the Tolle Lege Literary Society. Some of the Learning Commons Lounge’s best features are its mellow ambiance and morphable layout. Although moderately small, it is also a quieter public event space than Speakers’ Corner on the first floor.
