- an emergency exit and new washrooms are required on the 2nd floor due to increased usage since installation of the LINC and expansion of the Learning Commons
- the library’s’ budget won’t allow for the extra costs of having this work done outside regular working hours
- we expect the noisiest work will be done within a week
- there are areas in the building (we especially recommend the 4th and 5th floors) that are available for study purposes where the noise cannot be heard
- it is not possible to close the library for the duration of this work
- library staff mind the noise too. We’re all trying to grin and bear it!
Thanks everyone for your patience!
