As we reported yesterday, we experienced major water damage due to a broken pipe. This affected a large portion of the library including the Learning Commons, South Reading Room, Archives, and Veterans’ Reading Room. We’ve been working to repair the damage with the facilities team. The library main area will remain closed Saturday, November 28.
The Library Living Room as well as the Circulation Desk will remain open and students may check out laptops and other equipment. We will provide another update Saturday evening.
We are sorry for the inconvenience!
Update 9 pm Saturday: Clean-up continued throughout the day. The library main area will re-open Sunday although select areas may remain closed. We will post more details as they become available.
Thank you to all library, facilities, CITS, and public safety staff who have worked diligently to ensure that we could continue providing library services while restoring the building as quickly and safely as possible.
