While it’s generally no problem to find an electrical outlet in the library, around finals, free outlets are as scarce as hen’s teeth.

The 24/7 Study Area in the Library Addition contains a solution: the tower of power. The Samsung Mobile Charging Station is equiped with four outlets dedicated to recharging batteries. There’s no fee to use it, but you do need to provide your own charger. Just think of it as the library’s way of giving power to the people!
