Library Renovation Update – Nov. 11, 2013

November 11, 2013 – The renovation plans for the library are moving along nicely, and we will be moving the week of January 6-10, 2014 into temporary quarters on the 6th floor of the Alexander building during the first renovation phase. The first phase of the Alexander building renovation will include the basement and library floors 2, 3, and 4. The second phase will include 5 and 6, and the third phase floor 7.

We plan to close the library at 5pm on Friday, December 20th (last day before the holiday break). The university is closed the following week, and we will complete packing up the library December 30-January 3. Everything in the library will be packed and ready for the move beginning on Jan 6th. E-resources will still be available 24/7. Many library services will continue during the renovation with some limitations.

We hope to reopen the library for business (and students) on the 6th floor on Friday, January 24, 2014. We are still working to determine library hours for our limited space. We anticipate the first renovation phase will take many months. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. The results will be worth the wait with greatly expanded seating capacity and student study, learning, and information commons.
