The first floor entrance to the library opened for traffic on the first day of classes, Monday, August 25th. The new entrance allows direct access to the building from recently rerouted Newton Road and provides an ADA accessible route to the health sciences campus. Currently, the entryway is staffed but only marginally equipped; within the semester we hope to have the entire area painted, recarpeted and refurbished to allow patrons to check out books from that location. Plans are also underway to provide a small and attractive study/lounge area on the first floor for group study, conversation, and Internet connectivity.
