The final shipments of furniture for the new RIS Commons in the northeast area of the First Level should arrive and begin being assembled on Friday, August 4th. Installation should be complete by Tuesday, August 7th.
Re-carpeting of the southwest area of the Second Level (“the Wedge”) should begin within the next two weeks, but the exact start date is not yet known. This project should take approximately one week to complete.
Terry Rowland, who has served as coordinator on many renovation projects, plans to retire later this summer. We wish Terry the best in his retirement.
The Space Committee (Bennett, Neuschwander, Stout, and Peters) have held several planning meetings with interior designers and suppliers to develop entirely new furnishing plans for the main lobby as well as the Wedge in the southwest area of the Second Level. Plans will be shared soon with all library employees, as well as others, for review and comment. The goal is to completely replace the furnishings in these two areas between the end of the fall semester in December and the beginning of the spring semester in January.
