The Hawkeye Community College Library was pleasantly surprised to find it was featured on the cover of the September 2016 issue of Choice. The Hawkeye Library is the second Cedar Valley library to be featured in 2016; UNI’s Rod Library graced the cover in May 2016.

The area pictured on the cover is popular with students as there are 2 computers available, fun book displays & the furniture offers charging ports for electronics. It is also a great place for students to gather as they wait for library tours or relax between classes.

This space was remodeled 18 months ago; in its previous iteration the area under the stairs was a large pit with greenery that was neither aesthetic nor usable. With ideas from the library staff, the design team from the original architectural firm, Struxture Architects, created a new space that is contemporary looking and student friendly.
