Construction Alert

Hughes Library Renovations Underway:
Now through early August

Renovations at the main Hughes Library are continuing. In the first two weeks we have re-designed the computer lab and put down new flooring in the reference and computer areas. Plywood partitions remain around the construction areas on the first and second floor.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Hughes Foundation and the support of many generous donors during our centennial year, we will be making some much needed improvements to the main library, including:

  • Redesigning the second floor computer lab. Done!
  • Adding restrooms to the second floor
  • Adding study rooms and new meeting spaces to the second floor
  • Adding a comfortable adult reading area on the second floor
  • Adding a cafe to the Friends bookstore area on the first floor

We apologize for any disruptions the work may cause.  We expect all work to be completed in August. Thank you for your patience and support!
