Construction Work to Take Place at W. W. Hagerty Library

Construction work will begin in mid-June on the lower level of W. W. Hagerty Library. The work will, at times, include a significant amount of noise and disruption to activities in rooms L13A, L13C and L14. The majority of work with loud equipment will occur during break week. The work will last for approximately one month.

The lower level will remain open during construction, but may be noisy at times. Facilities will work to minimize the disruption. We apologize for the inconvenience.
