Pardon Our Appearance: Construction has begun!

Construction has officially begun on the Remembering Sr. Helen Mary Weisbrod, SHCJ, Information Commons. Workers have started the demolition phase of the project, pulling up the old flooring and removing light fixtures. They will be working all summer long to have the renovation completed in time for the start of classes in the Fall 2010 semester.

The library will be open during the renovation with modified hours. The main entrance is part of the construction zone and will be closed to the public. For the summer we will be entering through the library's original doors facing Connelly Green. We will be here to serve you all summer, so stop in to see us.
