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 21:
- Pipe installation for the sprinkler system in the Daley Library will continue on the 4th floor, affecting all public areas and research carrels on that floor. There will be some work pulling electrical wires to the fire alarm notification appliances (strobes and horns) on the 2nd floor/north.
- Construction in the Daley Library Circle Reading Room (1st floor) continues.
- The electrical upgrade project in the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago continues.
