Several small group spaces (10-15 persons) and study and tutoring rooms (2-4 persons) should be in the adult space. The area should also include an enclosed “quiet” space to accommodate 20 people at study table/chairs and lounge seating that muffles sound. The large space should be able to be opened to the larger space when necessary.
"Pop" materials should be a section of the adult area as a whole, not a separate area.
The adult area should be physically separate from other areas of the library. It provides space for fiction and nonfiction and media collections for adults, access to technology and other equipment, and space for reading, study, browsing and relaxation.
