Some Changes to the Library Layout

Megan Vowles, our Libraries Supervisor, on proposed changes to the arrangement of furniture in the library:
You may have noticed that we have two empty bays at the moment near the Holds shelf.  We have moved the Non –Fiction and biography stock up a bit , freeing up some shelves that were in that section already and the plan is that these two bays will house the DVD collection.  The current, big and cumbersome DVD stand will then go.
We are also looking at replacing the big wooden tables that are currently in the library with more portable tables which will help make more useable space up that end of the library (e.g we will be able to move tables for the monthly coffee mornings, or it could come in useful in the future if the group wants to start running other activities). It would be good to get your feedback about these changes.
