Françoise opened the meeting by thanking Harvey Dessel for his presence and asked for his input in obtaining an appropriate Welcome Desk for the lobby.
The qualities that the new Welcome Desk should have:
The existing Welcome Desk will be removed and the floor tiles may need to be repaired/replaced. In addition the data, phone & electric lines will need to be re-routed. A determination will be made as to what will happen to the existing directory, which is mounted on the wall directly behind the proposed location for the new Welcome Desk. It was thought that on this wall underneath the words Alexander Library the word Welcome would be appropriate. Bannister could be contacted to match the lettering style. The possibility of an electronic directory was also discussed. Harvey will check other Welcome Desks for ideas and comparisons.
At this time the committee did a walk-through in the lobby and back area of the atrium. Harvey will research alternate possibilities (including tablet arm chairs) to leather chairs proposed by Arbee.
The meeting adjourned at 11:00 AM
