“I love old book stacks. I just love walking into random parts of the Library and sifting through old books that smell old. It’s really weird, but there’s so many little things you can find that are so interesting.”
— Satrant Bains ’25
“I’d say overall it’s just the atmosphere. I usually like to come and just sit and do some work.”
— Aliana Rojas ’25
“My favorite part of the Library is the Reading Room. I just really like how it’s always bright in there, and I work best in the quiet.”
— Maddie McClay ’23
“I like Holy Grounds because I feel like I need a little stimulation when I’m doing my work.”
— Ashley Mulhare ’23
“I like coming and people watching and doing work.”
— Christian Badalamenti ’24
“I’d say my favorite part is this room in particular [Falvey 205].”
— Mac Clark ’24
“My favorite part of the Library is the Reading Room with all of its windows. Sometimes I can watch the sunset there.”
