Brown Library Renovation: Phase Two

The college will be moving forward with a renovation to the second floor of the Brown Library, beginning in the early Spring of 2013.  The renovation will be funded with student fees and is planned to result in a more functional and comfortable traditional library space for students.  

In order to get ready for the renovation, on Thursday, November 29th, the library’s top floor will close at 8:00 p.m. and remain closed through the spring 2013 semester.  

The library’s Circulation Department employees will move down to the main floor to continue serving students, staff, and faculty and continue providing resources.

Stay tuned for more information!
