Starting June 26th, the Morse and Historical Library Reading Rooms will undergo a series of small renovations. Enhancements in the Historical Library Reading Room will include new area rugs to help with sound attenuation, new tables with surface-accessible power, and improved and more efficient lighting. Updates in the Morse Reading Room will include refinished tables with new lighting and surface-mounted power outlets, new carpet, improved lighting throughout the space, and repair of windowsills and storm windows.
Work is expected to be completed in August. During this time, visitors will not have access to the Morse and Historical Reading Rooms. Those seeking quiet study areas are encouraged to use SHM L 115 on the main level and study spaces, privacy booths, and meeting rooms on the E and G levels.
