As you know Iowa Hall closed down for remodeling at the end of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and with it some of the normal places for students to go to study, to eat, and to relax will close down. Also, meeting spaces that staff use will be unavailable between the rooms in Iowa Hall being unavailable and normal meeting space being taken up by moved offices. Our group study rooms will now ALL be on a reservation system.
We’re expecting that people will be coming over to the library in bigger numbers. So we’re going to be less worried about noise and more worried about how things will effect Kirkwood students, faculty, and staff. We’re going to be bringing in extra chairs and tables. They’ll be bringing food next door to the bookstore.
Part of the remodeling plan is to bring out the entrance of the library, that will be a ways further into the construction project, but it will happen. During that time the library will remain open although space may have to be relocated.
So please plan on being patient with the library until this major construction project is done. If there is anything we can do, please ask and we’ll see if we can help.
Be sure to look for the Info to Know post later this month. There are going to be quite a few changes about where things are and I want to let people get settled.
