Karen, accountant

I needed a place without kids, dogs and husbands to study for my CPA exams. The study rooms were perfect! And if I wanted to be around people and still have relative quiet, I could enjoy some coffee at the cafe or sit by the lake. Without the library, dedicated study time would have been difficult for me.
