Reading Room furniture installed

Patron view of the reception desk and bay windows as one enters the
Reading Room of the Dennis G. Casebier Library.

Report and Photos by Chris Ervin

Here are a few images of the beautifully appointed Reading Room of the Dennis G. Casebier Library immediately after installation of the new furniture.

Patron view past the reception desk of three of the six bookcases.

The Reading Room reception units and library table are now assembled thanks to the efforts of Leslie Ervin. The six bookcases were earthquake-proofed and set against the walls by Chris Ervin.

The library table, which will seat future researchers,
takes full advantage of the east facing bay windows.

This beautiful new furniture, which complements the early twentieth century Santa Fe depot design of the new Dennis G. Casebier Library, was purchased with funds donated by the MDHCA membership.
