All of the wood-topped tables in the library
All of the wood-topped tables in the library are awful when trying to do homework. They are way too porous and/or the grain to broad. I'm either poking holes all over the page from my pencil graphite or I have a straight-side letter Q due to the grain hiding just beneath my E2 paper. They either need new surfaces or junked for new tables altogether. A fine engineering institution should have nice smooth table tops!
The Library is due to be renovated in summer 2017. The tables in this space are likely to be replaced during this process.
When is the library re-mod happening, USG?
