Big Changes Are Coming in 2019

In 2019, the library will see many new updates to both the second floor and media areas to make way for new technologies and to freshen up these well-loved spaces. 

Limited Services on Second Floor (June 3-June 17, 2019)

While new carpet is installed, limited services will be available on the second floor of the library.

  • Collections unavailable - Some collections in this area will be closed and unavailable for browsing. Please see a staff member for assistance.
  • Delays - Delays in availability of items will occur. Items on the second floor (including books and magazines) may be requested online. As time and space allow, requested items will be pulled off the shelf and delivered to your selected pickup location.
  • Study rooms closed - The study rooms and tutor rooms will be closed.
  • Seating limited - Limited seating will be available.
  • Smell - Pardon the smell. Floor glue is stinky, but non-toxic. The smell should disappear within a few days of installation.
  • Options - Laptops will be available to borrow if you would like to move to another area of the library away from the construction.

Thank you for your patience during this transition.

Coming Soon (2019)

  • Additional seating - Enjoy new chairs and other seating options will soon be installed on the second floor.
  • New and emerging technologies - Take advantage of state-of-the-art equipment in the new innovation lab, including a recording studio, augmented reality and virtual reality tools, and a printer that can produce large-scale posters. Coming soon.
  • Fresh look - Bright colors, new flooring, updated signage and more will be installed throughout the year.

Thank you for your patience during this transition.
