Library Construction Noise

There will be considerable noise from construction on all floors of the library building for the next few weeks, as the new library construction project is being connected to the existing building.

In order to connect the two buildings, walls along the South face of the library will be demolished over the next few weeks. There is likely to be a lot of noise from this, and we apologize to all students, faculty, staff and others who use the library.

Parts of the stacks on floors three and four are also affected by this process, as shelves nearest to the walls had to be emptied and removed in order to safely demolish the walls and to build temporary walls.

There should be no dust or other debris throughout the process, as temporary walls will have been constructed along the South walls to prevent the demolition from unduly affecting library patrons.

Please direct any inquiries or comments about the process to Adele Vanarsdale of Facilities Planning and Construction Management at (310) 243-3826. Her office horus are 8-5 Monday through Friday.

If you need help finding a book in the affected parts of the library stacks, please go to the Circulation desk for assistance. The Circulation desk is open during all library hours, and closes 15 minutes prior to the libary's closing time. Their phone number is (310) 243-3717.

The library will be open for normal summer hours throughout the construction process. See for a complete list.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
