Library Clock Tower Repairs 

For your safety, the library’s fourth floor will temporarily be closed to the public for repairs to the clock tower beginning 2/24/2022. If you need a book from the fourth floor during this time, please contact, visit the Ask Here Desk, or follow the steps below to request the item. Library Staff will collect requests and obtain materials a few times per day when it is safe to do so.

You will be notified via email when your book is ready to be picked up at the Ask Here Desk. We apologize for the inconvenience but are excited that repairs to the clock, begun prior to the pandemic, will now be completed!

We will notify campus when the repairs are complete.
