What’s New · Main Library South Building Flooring and Restroom Renovation Project

About the Project

Over the next few months, we’ll be replacing some of the flooring on the first, second, and third floors of the Main Library’s South Building and refurbishing the first floor restrooms in the same building. To minimize disruptions for our customers, some of the work will take place overnight while the building is closed. Samples of the new flooring and carpet are available for review in display cases in the South Building Atrium. Please check this page frequently as the renovation timeline is subject to change.
