Tag Archives: Learning Commons
By Robert Burkhardt
Come in and make yourself at home…literally, at the Athens State University Library’s Learning Commons area. We have new comfy seating that can be rearranged to suit a study group of one or more. Don’t want to sit at one of our desktop stations for PCs or Macs? Not a problem. Students and employees can check out a laptop for use in the building. You can relax and prop up your feet while researching or typing a paper. We have a self-serve kiosk for coffee, green tea, and hot chocolate for just $1.25 a cup. The only traditional librarian-shushing that we will do is that we still ask that you silence your cell phone and field any calls outside of the building. (The student next to you could be taking a timed exam….) The first floor is low talking, and the second floor is designated as a quiet study area.
