Thank you so much for your patience with the roofing project at Carlson Library this Fall semester. These roof repairs were necessary to ensure the safety of our building’s users and our collections. We know that the project with its associated smells and noise has disrupted your full enjoyment of the libraries as you study and work here. The odor, while unpleasant, is not hazardous or harmful; however, some people are more sensitive to it than others. The good news is that the project is anticipated being completed by Thanksgiving, giving you a more pleasant environment to study for finals and finish your end-of-term assignments.
More information about the project is available in this article from the Independent Collegian.
Thank you for your understanding!
