Starbucks is coming to the library! Oh, you thought they were already here? The current cafe serves Starbucks coffee, but in Fall 2010, the library cafe space will be transformed into a full service Starbucks with the complete restaurant menu -- the first on campus.
The cafe space on the 1st floor of the library (just inside the front doors) will be closed during the entire Summer 2010 semester for the renovations. Yes, the whole summer. Three to four whole months without coffee. Oh no, oh no, oh no! .... Take a deep breath. One, two, three, four... exhale. That's better. Remember, there are other places on campus to get a cup of the brown elixir. Mass Comm and the BAS both have coffee stations, as do several of the other dining facilities on campus. We can do this.
The group study rooms will be removed to make room for expanded food and drink preparation and storage, and the wooden study carrels will be replaced with more counter seating and casual seating arrangements, which we hope will provide ample spaces for both relaxation and group work.
In the meantime, you can look at the renovation plans and dream.
