The library offers the latest technology in its two classrooms and includes a Media Commons suite with a One Button Studio, recording booth, and three video editing rooms. The facility also houses a conference room, the Cohen Lounge, a Collaboration Commons, the Discovery Lab, technology pods, ten small study rooms, eight group study rooms, and the Wyomissing Polytechnic Institute Exhibit and Timeline. Additional space and technology information is available in the “Study at the Library” section.
