Over 250 casual, group and graduate study spaces will be added to the Ryerson Library during the summer of 2008. Renovations to the fourth floor of the Library Building, previously occupied by Ryerson’s School of Urban and Regional Planning, will enable the Library to create two large casual study areas, a graduate student reading room and lounges, and additional breakout rooms for group work. Space on the floor will also be used for the Library’s growing Special Collections.
The plan of the floor provides an overview of the allocation of space on the floor. Furnishings and finishes – lightly stained wood, sea spray green carpeting and light green vitrine tiles on the columns – will be consistent with those used in the Library’s Ronald D. Besse Information and Learning Commons.
Renovations are expected to be completed by the fall term.
