You may have noticed heavy equipment and some digging behind the John C. Hitt Library. There will be noise in the library associated with the site preparation work, particularly on that side of the building.
The site is being prepared for some of the work on Phase 1 of the 21st Century Library project, which will include construction of an Automated Retrieval Center (ARC) on the north side of the current library building.
Pardon our dust! The transformation of the library is just beginning.
