Research Library Renovation (3)
The contractor has arrived and the first floor is being cleared so that demolition can begin.
All of the previous casework must be taken down and removed.
The computer commons comes down, but the cabling must be carefully handled. Shelving will be dismantled, stored, and returned to the new Reference Room.
One realizes just how large the spaces are when everything is removed.
The temporary wall that separated the reading room from staff areas will be demolished opening up even more space.
The self check-out station has been relocated. Circulation services will remain at its current location until its new space is completed about 6 months from now.
