This week a repair crew will be working on the L Building roof. This may cause some noise in the Library. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We want to remind students that our lower level is our silent zone. If you are looking for somewhere to escape the noise, this may be a better alternative. This roof repair work is important to prevent leaks that may damage our library’s collection.
