Introducing the Library's New "Living Room"

The Cuyamaca College Library has just opened up a new study space called The Living Room, located in room C-219 on the second floor of the library. This spacious area - with some of the best views on campus - is officially designated as"laid back." Students will find comfortable seating, as well as tables and chairs for those who want to study in groups. A large whiteboard is also available.

While The Living Room is a hotspot for those needing wireless access, it also houses a number of desktop computers with full Internet access (yes, that means MySpace and Facebook), as well as the 2007 Microsoft Office Suite, including Access, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word. All of these computers are wired to a black and white printer (15 cents a page) and a color printer (75 cents a page).

We do try to create a noiseless environment in the library, especially in the quiet study area--yet talking is acceptable in The Living Room. This is a student space, and we hope students will work together to make it their own. Please let us know what you think.
