Construction Concierge
Construction Concierge Desk
While workers are installing a fire suppression system (aka sprinklers) on each floor of the library, some areas of book shelves will be covered in plastic sheeting. Access to those stacks will be restricted to library staff only. This is for the safety of library users, construction workers, and of the books themselves.
 
Wherever you encounter books “under plastic” head to the main lobby of that floor to find the Construction Concierge Desk. A library staff member will be at the desk during peak hours between 10am and 6pm weekdays to retrieve books for you. Outside of those hours, ask for help at the Research Help Desk or Check-Out Desk on the first floor and we’ll be happy to assist you. You may also request an item online using these instructions.
