Noise alert: Main (2nd) floor in the Knowledge Commons

Construction of a door to the Automated Retrieval Center has begun at the back of the Knowledge Commons on the 2md (main) floor.
To seek a quieter environment, library classrooms 235A and 235C are open for study. These are located off Infusion, the café area. Areas in the front of the building (Reflecting Pond side), on 3rd and 4th floor may be out of the noisy area.
Earplugs are available at the Circulation Desk if the noise is a challenge.
We apologize for this inconvenience.
