The Reading Room is a true quiet reading sanctuary for all students and faculty who want to read. Both hardback books and eBooks are welcome in the Reading Room.
The Technology Room is next to the Reading Room. Students are welcome to work on the lego wall, play with the wii, or collaborate with other students on coding and technology projects. Please make sure you clean up after your adventures in the Technology Room so the next person may have an amazing experience too.
