So we started this thing where we're putting a leadings statement or open question on a whiteboard in the library to which people can respond. The first prompt was "I wish the library..."

One of the early responses was later erased:

Final view from the Broadway side of the 2nd floor of the library:

Final view from the Claremont side (i.e. offices and Lehman 201)

If you have a suggestion for statement/question, email it to or tweet it to @barnlib.


We hear you about later hours. The problem is, we don't have the funding. This is all good info for the new building, though.
