Claire T. Carney Library – Air Conditioning

Update — Tuesday Morning, July 25th

The AC is working and the building is much more comfortable.

Update — Monday Afternoon, July 24th

The AC part arrived and the unit has been repaired. However, it will take 24 hours to cool the building. The library is open regular hours today, but please be prepared for warm indoor conditions if you visit us!

Original Post – Monday Morning, July 24th

The Claire T. Carney Library is currently open but without air conditioning. The Vice Chancellor for Administration & Facilities, David Gingerella, shared the following message with the UMassD Community this morning:

“Dear UMassD Community,

Due to a component failure within the HVAC system, the air conditioning for the Claire T. Carney Library has been taken offline. We are currently awaiting the replacement part, and once they arrive, the Facilities staff will immediately install and begin testing the unit.

We will provide an update on the Library as soon as possible. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.


David Gingerella
Vice Chancellor for Administration & Facilities”

We will update this post as we learn more. If you have questions about library hours, please call the Circulation Desk at 508-999-8750.
