The Millar Family Learning and Discovery Room includes everything small groups might need to explore and learn. Donor Terry Millar recognized that his sense of discovery, connection to nature, and love of history came from his ancestors, and this room is named to celebrate the Millar family legacy.

The Terentiuk Space for Adult Learning is named for donor Robin Terentiuk and her late husband, Fred, who have been long-time supporters of literacy and education. This space recognizes the importance of learning throughout adulthood.
