The grand opening of the new Palouse Study Lounge in Terrell Library will be 3-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, on the atrium ground floor. Refreshments will be served.

“Studies have shown that student success is closely linked to the amount of time spent in libraries,” said Jay Starratt, dean of WSU Libraries. “We are consistently working to enhance the student experience by expanding the libraries’ physical spaces, and this new study space is one of our more ambitious projects.”

Located in the area formerly used for media, materials and reserves, the lounge has up-to-date technology access, private rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and movable, comfortable furniture. The lounge features mural images by local photographer Alison Meyer of the region’s rolling hills, wheat fields and Palouse Falls.

Private room reservations will be available later in February. To book a room, visit http://calendar.libraries.wsu.edu/rooms.php?i=102.
