Olin Library is undergoing a renovation that will make the campus hub even more accessible and enjoyable. Included in the renovation is the beloved Whispers Café. When it re-opens in spring 2018 along with the rest of the library, Whispers will include more seating and a view of new Newman Tower of Collections and Exploration that will run through the center of the building. The café has long been a central place for students, staff and faculty to meet, study or grab a coffee or baked good. Here, we look back at how a simple courtyard was transformed into a “hoppin‘” cybercafé.
