Renovation Update

Update on the Birkerts Addition:

  • The space continues to be closed off to the public.
  • Two bands of limestone were removed along the curved portion of the Birkerts addition. When the exterior welding is completed later this month, the window openings will be measured and glass will be ordered.
  • The fire suppression system has been updated and will now accommodate higher ceilings.
  • Ceiling framing has begun and new coffers are being installed above the future computer space.
  • Restoration of the exterior brick on the original building is nearly complete.

Update on the new computer lab and makerspace:

  • A temporary wall has been constructed around the space, which is located across from the Circulation Desk.
  • The original windows and plaster walls and ceilings have been exposed and will be repaired and updated in the next few weeks.

The project is running on time and the anticipated end date is May 2017. We apologize for the dust, noise, and other inconveniences.
