Library Services I Wish I Had Thought of!

Napping Stations!

The Chronicle of Higher Education breathlessly reports that the University of Michigan has installed napping stations where students are encouraged to nap for half-hour blocks under staff supervision on vinyl cots. They offer small lockers to store belongings, and disinfectant wipes to clean the cots and the pillows have disposable pillow cases.

Much better than the sofas scattered around libraries, unsupervised where students have drooled for generations, and slept with their belongings at risk of looting!

Not only that, but a single student could monopolize the sleep surface for hours!

How wasteful is that?!
