Dear 100 Hour Board,

Where's your favorite spot in the HBLL?

-My Name Here


Dear you,

I really like that huge globe on the second floor.



Dear Patron,

Behind the desk. 

-A Librarian


Dear MNH,

I don't go to the library much lately except to get books (come on, The Wise Man's Fear!).

Before I had my own desk and a computer that ran reasonably well, I would usually go down to the Science and Maps section on the second floor, because that's where I would find any reference books related to my major that I might need.

Dear Militant, Nefarious Hibiscus,

Ha! Thought you were clever, eh? You'll never find me! YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!

-Frère Rubik is partial to the music area on the second floor or any place with windows (the raised desks on the fifth floor, the snack zone, and the recently discovered music reading room, to name a few).


Dear Musky Napping Hat,

I love the tables by the juvenile literature section. The mural is just so cool.

I also really like the music area on the second floor if I need to focus on something and my normal music is too distracting.

And let's be honest, I love the snack zone because sometimes I just want to surf the web do homework while sitting in a comfy chair eating a snack. 



Dear you,

I have a confession: I basically don't use the HBLL for anything. My major has simply never made it necessary.

When I was a freshman, my computer broke and I used the computers in the No Ssh Zone while it was getting fixed.

Occasionally I will stop and relax in the snack zone if I'm passing through.

I have been to study groups in various rooms of the library.

Once I tried to use a study carrel and got bored.

There were a few times before my mission when I hung out on the couches on the second floor by the main staircase.

Before the south entrance was built, I had church in those three classrooms on the south end. I also had a student development class in one of those rooms last year.

But yeah, in general, the library mainly functions as an air-conditioned conduit from the Kennedy Building to the JKB.



Dear Monty,

5th floor. Raised desks with the rolling chairs. See you there.

Dear MNH,

I used to love the cushy chair-desks down on the bottom floor of the atrium, especially one of the two behind the trees in the northwest corner. They give you privacy, desk space, an outlet, and invigorating visages of indoor flora. But then my homework started requiring even more desk space so I moved to the desks in the southernmost section of the first floor. The middle desks especially give you a lot of space and good outlets, and the wi-fi seems more consistent than in other areas.
