St. Cloud State Library Adds Full Spectrum Lighting

scsu_full_lightsWe all know its coming, and we can’t do anything to stop it… WINTER! With days getting shorter and nights getting longer, the Library at St. Cloud State University decided to do something about it. Partnering with the Counseling and Psychological Services, they recently announced the addition of full spectrum lighting in a beach-like area of  the Library. The video below shows you the area and has interviews with happy SCSU students who are excited about using the lights this winter.

Many people in the library world are looking for more partnering and collaborative opportunities. The Dean of the Library, Mark Vargas, and his staff show us that sometimes those partnerships may come from areas not typically used. Do you have examples of great or different partnerships you’ve found for your library? Share them in the comments!
