The Reading Public Library will be holding an open house today, Wednesday, October 13 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the South East Branch, 1426 Perkiomen Avenue. The event will celebrate the opening of the Jerome I. Marcus Meeting Commons, a high-tech private meeting room that can accommodate up to eight people. The room is equipped with commercial grade technology including ultra high definition television and smart BYOD (bring your own device) connectivity. A sound masking system creates a private space suitable for work, school or social services.

The Director of Advancement and Communications said: “This exciting new room is an extension of the Learning and Meeting Commons project funded by a donation from Dr Jerry Marcus. Dr Marcus provided the vision and financial support. Members of the design and build team, led by volunteer and board member Mike Micozzi of Burkey Construction, followed with offered and discounted services.
According to Branch Manager Emily McNulty, “This room will provide our neighbors with a living space equipped to meet the needs of an increasingly connected society through virtual communication.
