Pattee-Paterno Library Self-Guided Tour

There are QR codes (look for small signs like the example to the right) placed throughout the 1st floor of the library which link to web pages with brief descriptions of each space, along with a map showing where the next stop along the tour is located. There is no beginning or end point, so the tour can be started or finished at any of the locations. More information about the self-guided tour.
