THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL JULY 6th. Beginning Monday, July 6th, the library will only be open from 7:30am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday. It will not be open during the evening. It will not be open during the evening or on Sundays (the library isn't open on Saturdays during the summer). The restriction of the library's hours will last until Monday, the 20th of July (this is the planned date).
The reason for the restriction of the library's hours is that its air conditioning will be shut down for two weeks. There is an apparent coolant leak in the geothermal system that powers the library (and other buildings around campus) that needs to be traced and, in order to find the leak, the system needs to be off. As we have experience with the temperatures that the library reaches when the air conditioning is off – during the summer of 2012, the library was without cooling for 2 and 1/2 months – we may unfortunately have to curtail the restricted hours even further. Keep checking back here for any changes that are made.
