Bowles Room/Video Viewing

The Video Viewing/Bowles Room is located on the lower level library and is named for Edward Bowles, a former Bentley trustee. He donated his personal library to Bentley, stipulating that the books be shelved together in a separate room. The collection comprises about 2600 volumes, with strengths in religion, European and Asian history, art, American literature, natural history, and photography.

The room also contains 8 stations designated to view VHS or DVD content. Equipment includes monitors with DVD/VCRs and audio amplifiers. Headphones for these stations can be checked out at the Library Services Desk. Microfilm collections are also housed in this room, along with a microfilm/microfiche reader that can be used to view, print, and/or email a PDF document.

Located on the main level of the library, the Deloitte Café features Einstein Bros. Bagels. Comfortable seating, wireless network access, and large-screen televisions make the café ideal for relaxing. Hours vary, so check the Bentley Dining Einstein Bros.
