Thank you for your Nov. 28, 2012, Opinions column about the 24-Hour study room at Tarver Library. This kind of study space was one of the things that students asked for specifically as we planned the new library back in the 1980s and since we opened Tarver in 1990, it has been a very popular part of our services. Just in Fall 2012, we had over 2,475 students use their BearCards to enter the area after hours.
I wanted to let you know that the 24-hour area group study rooms were repainted over the 2012 Christmas break and the whole place got a good cleaning. We hope students will be glad for a spruced up space.
Again, thanks for your comments about our popular student space. I’d be glad to answer any other questions you might have.
