LAMP Update: Homecoming at Library Square
Queen’s alum and other passersby were treated to free coffee and library-themed cupcakes outside Stauffer Library today, and a place to mingle. The bistro tables and chairs gave a taste for the potential of the ‘Library Square’ envisioned in the Library and Archives Master Plan and the Campus Master Plan. The area was set up similarly on Thursday as well, just to see what would happen on a normal day without a special event. What happened was that people used it — to study, to chat with friends, and in some cases just to rest as they were walking by. People were excited:
- “It feels so urban!”
- “This should always be here!”
- “It’s about time this happened.”
- “It transforms the whole campus.”
Thanks to the City of Kingston for lending us some of their tables and chairs from Market Square!
