Dear TJSL Community,

It’s time to make decisions about furnishings for the new building! You may have noticed some new chairs in the Library and Faculty Services. We want you to test them out and give us your comments. Please provide as much detail as possible – be sure to explain why you like or dislike a chair/feature.

We need your comments on the chairs regarding their comfort, utility, and style
• Be sure to try out any available features, including adjusting the chair up/down, adjusting the back, arms, etc.
• Don’t worry about fabrics or colors; those decisions are being handled by our excellent interior designers – we refer to the colors/fabrics below simply for purposes of identification

Classrooms
There are 6 chairs currently being considered for the classrooms. Comfort is probably the most important factor here. They are all located in the Library, around the tables near the Copy Center and at the nearby ThomCat terminal. Pictures of each of the chair are posted here and on the Library’s Facebook page.
