Construction on the 4th Floor

The library is having some minor construction work done on the 4th level, the quiet study level in the library. We expect this work to be completed by Thanksgiving. We apologize for the disruption during our 8 - 4:30 hours, but expect the floor will be quiet during evening study hours. Thanks for your patience during this project.
