TEEN ROOM RENOVATION
The Teen Room in the LSC-CF Branch Library has been undergoing a complete renovation with new furniture, repainted walls, 8 new desktop computers and 6 gorgeous new paintings purchased from our LSC-CF student artists. All the artists were in Professor Laura Fisher's Painting II course and the artwork was on display last December as part of the 2014 Fall Student Art Exhibition in the Bosque Gallery. The artists are Sandra Haubein, Al Nash and Patti Lozano.
The complete article on the renovations can be found here (PDF).
