Would it be possible for the library to put 3 - 4 tables downstairs for students to study in groups instead of only upstairs?
We would love to have some more group areas for students to study. You have a good point about carrying a bunch of books upstairs. The lack of an elevator inside the library is a problem. It might be possible for us to rearrange some of our study carrels or lounge furniture to do as you suggest. I am wondering how large a group you are thinking of?
