Several facilities projects are underway in the Richard J. Daley Library and the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago. All projects create dust and noise; patrons coming to the buildings should consider bringing hearing protection devices. The Library will keep patrons informed about temporary service desk relocations and inaccessible areas on its website and building signage.
Areas affected during the week of July 14:
- Pipe installation for the sprinkler system in the Daley Library 2nd floor will be completed and will begin on the 4th floor/north. This work will impact the 2nd floor quiet study area and public areas on the 2nd and 4th floors.
- The terrazzo flooring on the 1st floor/northeast area of the Daley Library is expected to be completed on Wednesday, July 16. Until completion of the project, there is no access to/from the 1st floor north stairwells, and the administrative hallway is inaccessible. Any library staff member can provide instructions on alternate paths to the dean’s office, Human Resources, and ILL/DRU.
- Construction in the Daley Library Circle Reading Room (1st floor) continues.
- The electrical upgrade project in the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago continues.
