Laupus extends study space outdoors

On behalf of Spring Semester Reading Day, Laupus Library invites you to take a break and enjoy the beautiful weather by using our new outdoor furniture located on the 4th-floor terrace balcony. Although libraries were once known for strict policies prohibiting food and drink, Laupus Health Sciences Library at ECU transforms our space to embrace the needs of our users with the support of the Friends of Laupus Library.
