Library Open House

Come check out our improved student lounge, open during all library hours! Through a generous donation from Tommy Wayne Quaid Jr. (ECU alumni ‘88) and a matching gift from his employer (HP Global Solutions) the library was able to purchase new window shades, rugs, and comfortable furniture. Now you have leather couches, chairs, and love seats as well as two tables for your use. The room also includes snack and beverage machines, access to the Wireless, and beautiful plants (provided and cared for by the ECU’s Physical Plant).

The lounge is named in honor of Mr. Quaid’s father, Tommy Wayne Quaid Sr. (ECU alumni ‘61) Tommy Sr. transferred to ECU from Murray State College, played basketball here at ECU, and graduated with Biology and Chemistry degrees. The lounge includes a beautiful plaque naming the lounge in honor of Quaid Sr.  The library is hosting a reception to honor the Quaid family and their contribution to ECU on October 26th, at 10:00 AM.
