This summer the library is surrounded, literally, by a number of construction projects, including road work on Park, Langdon and Observatory. In addition, major repairs continue on the parking garages beneath Helen C. White Hall. As a result, patrons should expect to hear drilling/jack-hammering throughout the library between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The noisy work in the parking areas will continue, unfortunately, through mid-August.
Looking on the bright side, it’s so nice when the drilling stops and quiet reigns once again. Since the library is open until 11 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday (and until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday), there are a number of hours when you can study undisturbed. Look here for updates on the construction; we’ll post them as they become available.
