We are having new carpet installed on the first floor of the Library beginning Tuesday, July 26. The installers tell us that they should be done by August 11, possibly sooner. A company is coming to move the book stacks so that the installer can carpet underneath them. They have specialized equipment that can lift up fully loaded stacks and move them around. This will provide the best result but means that we will need to close the first floor while this work is being done. There will be a temporary entrance into the Library from the 2nd floor stairwell on the Kirkwood side. Reference and Circulation services will be set up in Study Room number 248.
