Library Main Floor Renovation Project

We are pleased to announce that the Library will be undergoing a Main Floor Renovation beginning May 14th. The Library will remain operational throughout the renovation with services being provided on the Lower Level. The Library will be CLOSED on Saturday, May 12 & Sunday, May 13 (regular Intersession Closure) and will re-open Monday, May 14th with services on the Lower Level. Entry to the library will be from the Lower Level Entrance near Brookens Auditorium

Scope of the Project: 

We will be adding a classroom space to the Main Floor of Library, near the back, that seats 48 and will be equipped for library instruction and workshops. The entire public space of the Main Floor will be re-carpeted with a more modern and durable flooring. Collections like the Popular Books Collection, Feature Films Collection and New Books will remain on the Main Floor, while other Collections: Newspapers, Government Documents, and Legal Reference will be relocated. The Main Desk, currently near the front of the Library, will be reconfigured to better serve patrons. The new layout will be more open with new computer stations and a new print/scan area to enhance how the space is used. The Main Level will continue to be a space that encourages group study, with mobile furniture, booth seating, and collaboration tables.  Floors 3 and 4 will remain quiet study floors.

Timeline:

The target date for the completion of the project is September, 2018. We plan to re-open the Main Floor of the Library October, 2018.
