Summer renovations have added fresh paint and carpeting, more collaborative workspaces, new outdoor seating, and 115 new indoor seats for studying to USC's Leavey Library.

See the renovations yourself at two special events: a meet-and-greet with Leavey's librarians on Thursday, September 11, from 10:00 a.m. to noon; and a tour of the renovations beginning on Friday, September 12, at 10:00 a.m. on the library's terrace.
