The Travelling Library Show...

... coming soon to a building near you.

We are now about 75% complete with the move. The stacks and the Reference collection have  been relocated to NE 118 and NE 116 respectively. Next week, the remaining collections should be relocated, where they will remain while the renovation work is going on.

The building will be turned over to the contractor by February 1, 2010, and the "official" move-back date is August. We are hopeful that will be accurate, but are preparing for delays.

In the meantime, patrons should come to NE 116 to find Tim and the Refernce Desk (after Thanksgiving), along with the Circulation Desk and reserve collection. The stacks will be closed to patrons, so materials must be requested through the catalog and will be retrieved by staff. When possible, we will pull items immediately - but be prepared to wait. We will pull materials evey hour (or more often when feasible), although weekends will be slower (at least on Saturdays).
