There are two brand new silent reading rooms on LB-3 – the first two of a total of nine to come. With plenty of natural light, these rooms are sure to provide a stimulating and inspiring study space for Concordia students.

There are over 400 seats in the reading rooms. Desktop computers are provided in each reading room. Tables were purchased from the renowned furniture provider Steelcase. They were selected for design, usability/ergonomics, and resistance to wear. The table tops can be replaced in the future, if needed. The chairs were designed by Herman Miller, the iconic furniture design firm. All lights on the tables are independent and work on timers, which helps minimize energy waste.
