Beginning Thursday, September 14, carpet installation will occur on stairs in various areas of the Main Library. Powerful adhesive is required for this installation, so be advised that you may experience some days and times when the smell of the adhesive may be strong. Also, certain stairs may be temporarily inaccessible. We anticipate the remainder of the installation to be complete within 7-10 days. Thank you for your patience.
