While You Were Gone

Musselman Library was very busy this summer while you were away. In addition to our regular summer duties, three major projects were underway during the summer months.

Rebricking of Library Steps. After Alumni Weekend in June the library steps facing Stine Lake were removed and replaced with new brick. Enjoy the freedom of walking on non-eroding brick steps!

New Study Space. You asked, we listened. After hearing a reoccurring request for “silent” study space, we turned part of the 2nd floor into a quiet room. Feel free to take advantage of this new study space on the north side of the 2nd floor – but please remember to be SILENT!

Special Collections Renovation. After mitigating the mold outbreak in Special Collections that was discovered last spring, the 4th floor experienced some renovation this summer which included a new HVAC system, flooring and paint that will help ensure that the mold is truly gone.

The bad news? Special Collections and the 4th floor are not quite ready, and will be closed until October. If you need a book on the 4th floor (call numbers Q-Z) please talk to someone at the Circulation Desk about having a staff member retrieve it for you.

Thank you for your patience during this process!
