Scaffolding in the Great Library for repairs

Beginning on March 7th, repairs and replacements to the overhead lighting in the Great Library will begin and continue for several weeks.

There will be construction scaffolding erected starting in the south area near the entrance. There will be limited access during this initial phase of repairs. Access will improve as the project progresses north away from the entrance.

Access to books, computers, and work space will be restricted during this time. Please see staff if you require resources during this time.
