In a recent poll on the Library website, 84% of respondents voted for additional power sockets for reading tables and in the group study rooms. In response to user demand, the Library has recently added 75 power strips to reading tables throughout the Library.
Every study room now has power available at the table, along with about 60 reading tables in open study areas.
In each case, the power strip has been mounted to one of the table’s legs. A “Laptop Power” sign has been added to the table above that leg to help users locate the new power sockets.
These power strips are intended to be a temporary measure until funding becomes available for a more flexible permanent solution. In the meantime, additional such power strips will be added as needed.
