If you happen across areas cordoned off with yellow tape on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library, be assured that you have not run across multiple crime scenes. We are removing stacks to add seating on the 2nd floor and adding stacks for more books on the 3rd floor. While the work is taking place there will be more noise than usual as well as some mess, so please accept our apologies. As soon as we are able to get the carpeting patched up and the stacks bolted down the tape will disappear. For those of you who enjoyed the quiet seating area on the 3rd floor, be assured that we are not losing any quiet seating. The carrels have been moved to other areas on the 3rd floor and to a silent study area on the north side of the second floor. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
