Fredonia Selfie Project: Presented by Art Forum. 

Statement: A self-portrait is a representation that can be drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted by the artist. But is a “selfie” different than a “self-portrait” in today’s modern society? By definition, “a selfie is a self-portrait photograph taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone.” This project looks into what a selfie is, why people take them, and what we hope to achieve with them.

More outlets, tables, and quiet study in the library!

Long tables with stools and wall outlets have been added to the circular Friends Room near the library entrance. These outlets, along with all of our new outlets, have usb charging outlets built into them.

Half of the library computer tables have been replaced. The new tables are larger, which allows you to spread out your work and gather more than one person around a monitor. 

The Garden at Reed area inside the building had been expanded. The expansion includes long tables with wall outlets running along the wall.

A new work space has been opened on the 1st floor, between the art books and the bound periodicals. There are outlets and usb charging stations on the floor under the tables.

The group tables, over by the three study rooms, now have outlets running the length of the wall.

Also don’t forget the addition of outlets with usb chargers to many of our study carrels, which was made last year. 

In the Carnahan-Jackson Center, in addition to the 2rd floor Quiet Study, the 3rd floor has been converted to year-round Quiet Study space.
