Library Renovation: Materials Have Arrived

You many have been inconvenienced on Wednesday by having to wait for the elevators – we’re sorry, we’re to blame as materials for the new offices arrived on the fifth floor that way.

We are getting excited now as the much dreamed of library renovation is becoming a reality. In the photograph below you can see some of the materials that will be used in the renovation, there’s also blue tape on the floor outlining where the new offices will be.

We’ve finalized the color for the walls of the main library and we’ve decided to go with Benjamin Moore’s lemon ice OC114, we think you’ll agree that it’s a soothing, sophisticated color.

But, wait! There’s more – we’re also getting new carpet (prolonged applause)… and again we are going with what we have already (see the lobby area), yes it is a little industrial but definitely not distracting – a good choice for letting you get on with reading and studying.
