Install a refrigerated water cooler on this library level. Discard the most dysfunctional machine in the student lounge and use its electricity to power the cooler.
Thanks for your note in the Fondren Library Center suggestion box. While a water cooler in the library is a great idea, we do not have a budget to provide a water cooler for everyone. Library staff formed a water club and we pitch in our own funds to pay for it. We do provide water fountains. Bottled water is also available for $1.50 from the vending machines in the library basement.
CUL does provide refreshments occasionally during the school year, including at our Welcome Tent during the first week of school, during our cookout for National Library Week in April, and during the late night hours at the exam periods.
