Hazy Library Summer Renovation

 

The first floor of the library will be closed for most of the summer to bring you some exciting changes.

 

Movable Shelving

The bookshelves as you’ve known them are changing to movable shelving.  This will open up additional floorspace for more seating and possibly more computers in the long term.

 

While the renovation is going on, please tell us what books you need, and we will retrieve them for you and bring them to the checkout desk.

 

New Carpeting

All of the carpeting on the first floor is being replaced.  This means we’ve had to remove all the computers and seating from everywhere.  Don’t worry.  It will all be back in place by fall.

 

Second Floor

The second floor will be open throughout the renovation.  You’ll find that we’ve increased the seating at every table and that the study rooms are back to their normal capacity. 

 

We’ll be bringing back some of tech items for checkout as well that you may have been missing.  Yes, phone chargers, charging blocks, and headphones will soon be available at the help desk again.

 

While things may be noisy at times, the library is open, and we look forward to seeing you.
