First Floor Spruce Up

Welcome Back Albrightians! While you were enjoying a restful break  the first floor of the Gingrich Library underwent a sprucing up! The Gingrich Library received new carpet, paint and artwork. A few pieces of furniture were rearranged as well. Instead of having a sofa outside  of the librarians’ offices we have now moved it to our new conversation pit! The conversation pit is a place to relax and chat with your friends or enjoy a good book! Stop in this week to see the spruced up first floor!
