Construction update

Construction on the Learning Commons is proceeding at a fast pace. Here you can see the view through the lobby where the wall to Technical Services has been removed. The windowed area in the background, formerly staff office space, will be the new location of the reference collection. This area will feature comfortable seating and areas for group work, with a view through the windows to the Scandling Center.

Summer changes

After two hectic days of moving, the library has reopened for summer hours. As you can see, the first floor has been cleared and is ready for construction to begin. Watch this space for updates and pictures as the Learning Commons begins to take shape.

A few reminders:
  • To enter the library during construction, take the staircase next to the Geneva and Sanford rooms to the second floor. The main entrance will be closed for the summer.
  • Unfortunately, wheelchair access to the library will be unavailable during construction. If you need library services and cannot use the stairs, call the reference or circulation desk and we will make every effort to accommodate you.
  • Please delay any donations of material for the Archives or gift books until September.
  • Remember to arrange for use of the Archives in advance (please call Linda Benedict at least one week in advance at 781-3009, as the Archives will be open "by appointment" only).
  • Call ahead or make appointments for Reference service whenever possible.
