What should you expect when using the library during the elevator replacement?
Expect longer wait times for the elevator. You will have to wait longer for an elevator. This will be heightened May 6th – May 17th during our furniture installation project. For more information on this, see our blog post in the Dunbar Wire.
Expect to be rerouted to other elevators. The elevator running from the 1st to the basement floors will be closed for about 5 weeks in September and October. During this time, alternative elevators must be used. Information about alternative methods of ingress/egress will be announced in August.
Expect the same helpful and friendly staff. Our staff will be here providing our full array of services throughout the improvement process. If you would prefer to get assistance remotely, please use our Ask A Librarian service.
