The Miner Library Reading Room was once the original lobby to Strong Memorial Hospital. We are thrilled to showcase the new updates made to the Reading Room to provide our users with the resources and tools they need for success. In the Reading Room, that means comfortable seating, charging options, and a quiet space where they can study or take a much-needed break. 

Enjoy these photos of the Reading Room throughout the years, the refresh process, and the final product of a summer of hard work.
