1st Floor Now Open!

John C. Hitt Library 1st Floor MapThe John C. Hitt Library is happy to announce that the 1st Floor is now re-opened!

We had to close the 1st Floor late this summer to allow our crew the ability to clear out several stacks of books and re-arrange other parts of the collection. The construction crew also erected a temporary wall to allow further work on the connector building between the Library and the ARC building while keeping the 1st Floor in a usable state.

With the extra space now available from the removal of the stacks, we have relocated some of the furniture from the closed off portion of the 2nd Floor down to the new space on the 1st Floor. This new seating will allow for study and group work, but please be advised that the area will be noisy as it is located next to the construction site.

2nd Floor Closures

The back of the main (2nd) floor Knowledge Commons will be closed beginning Monday, October 29, to prepare for construction of a temporary wall.  The exterior wall, on the Student Union side, will be eventually be demolished as the “connector” is built.  The connector building will join the existing building with the Automated Retrieval Center (ARC).

On the 4th floor, books are being moved to prepare for  temporary wall construction.

We are sorry for the noise and disruption to your work.  Remember that earplugs are available upon request at the Circulation Desk.  Thank you for your patience, Knights.    For more on the 21st Century Library project check https://library.ucf.edu/21st/ .
