Gordon Library and fun? Skeptics keep reading…

Posted in In and Around the Library

Find board games at the libraryWhat are some fun things you can do in the library (besides read books, study, meet project teams)?

Well I think reading is pretty fun on its own, the library has a bit more to offer than just books. The first thing that I can think of is the computers and internet access available for WPI students and faculty. While the computers in the library are mostly used for academics, catching up on the latest news or checking Facebook isn’t off limits. If you’re studying with a group of friends there are some board games on the third floor, and you might be surprised by the variety of different games the library owns. There is the usual chess, checkers, and trivial pursuit along with more unusual games. On the same floor near the games, you can find DVDs to borrow, and there is quite an extensive collection.  (CDs and audiobooks are also in that area of the library).
