You may have noticed some activity going on alongside Criss Library this past week. The large piles of dirt and the loud noise of heavy construction equipment are due to a project designed to waterproof the library’s foundation walls. Funded by deferred maintenance dollars, the project seeks to eliminate water seepage coming into the lower level of the library. The project will run through most of the spring semester and, at times, there will be loud noise vibrating into the building from jackhammers and other equipment. But the good news is that the project will move along quickly and work will suspend during Study Days and finals week.
The library will remain open for our regular hours of operation throughout the project and services will not be impacted. Construction work and any associated noise is not expected on evenings past 6 P.M., weekends, or rainy days in addition to Study Days (May 5th and 6th) and finals weeks. Please pardon our progress as we make the library waterproof!
If you have questions related to the water-proofing project, please feel free to reach out to Dave Richards, Dean of Library Services.
