Library Entrance Closure - Summer 2014

Apr 25/14

For further information, please contact Peter Thomson, Project Coordinator: Renovations & Design, at or x4008.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 30th, the main entrance to the Library Building will be closed. The main entrance is being reconstructed during the summer and is scheduled to be reopened for the fall semester.  Construction will include demolition and removal of the entire elevated concrete podium along the east side of the library, which has been closed in recent years due to the deteriorated structural condition. The new construction will provide an attractive, universally-accessible entrance to the library facilities.

Access to the Library throughout the summer will be provided through the doors located at the rear of the building through parking lot 12 facing Albert Street.

The pedestrian walkway in front of the Library will also be closed for the summer to facilitate the demolition and construction activities. The Schlegel and Peters Buildings may be accessed via the exterior walkways beside the DAWB or via the sidewalks from Albert Street.

The construction activities will unfortunately be disruptive to the normal activities in this area of the campus, particularly during the initial demolition phase,  We regret the inconvenience, but note that the short term disruption is unavoidable in making these necessary improvements to the Library facilities.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Peter Thomson at or x4008.
