Back in 1940 there were many seats, but not many books and definitely no computers in the Hawley Library. Despite the seating capacity, the library was so crowded at finals time, that students had to reseve time to use the study space. Nowadays, everyone seems to need a computer, our Information Commons is full and people also bring their own laptops.
