Lounge chairs and settees, art
exhibits and record players may
not sound like library accessories,
but they are all an important part
of the University's new Under-
graduate Library.
The library, one of two under-
graduate libraries in the nation,
was opened for service on Janu-'
ary 16, 1958. Since that time, over
three and one-half, million people
have been counted as they entered
through the turnstiles.
"The staff is interested in the
students," Roberta Keniston, di-
rector, said, "and they want to,
help them in any way they can."
Mrs. Keniston emphasized that the
library is a friendly place, where
undergraduate students, especially,
can feel at home.
UGLI Exhibits Art
In the front part of the build-
ing (which is affectionately known
as UGLD is a lounge and print
exhibit area. The pictures are fur-
nished by the University Museum
of Art, which reaches a larger
group of people in this way, as well
as providing an interesting at-
mosphere.
A permanent metal sculpture
piece here was the gift of the class
of '58.
Another print gallery is on the
fourth floor of the library. The
art history department is in charge

of this exhibit. Many of the pic-
tures hanging there are especially
useful to students in art history
classes, but many other students
visit the gallery only for their own
pleasure.
Snack Bar Breaks
Another unique feature of UGLI
is the snack bar on the lower level.
It is closed during meal hours,
since its intention is not to pro-
vide meals, but rather to furnish
refreshment, both .physical and
mental.
It is a blessing to the student
who "camps out" in the library
for long hours at a time. It is less
of a wrench away from studying
(and back to it) if one doesn't
have to get his wraps on, go out,
and walk several blocks just to get
a cup of coffee.
The study areas of the library
are furnished to suit almost every-
one's taste: you may choose a
bright - colored modern lounge
chair or couch, a large study table
shared with several others, or a
secluded single desk.
For those who wish to use them,
there are several non - smoking
rooms along one side of the build-
ing on each floor.
