Noise Level:

  • How loud will the actual construction work get?
    • The noise levels will vary throughout this timeframe.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • Will the work take place during certain hours of the day?  Certain days of the week?
    • The work is scheduled to take place early on weekday mornings, and will wrap up around 3pm.  Every effort will be made to keep the library at the usual volume during weekdays from 3pm to close, as well as the weekends.
  • Are there other places on campus to study if the noise level gets too loud?  Are folks from the medical campus allowed to use these resources?
  • Can we borrow noise-canceling headphones at the circulation desk?
    • Unfortunately, we do not have noise-canceling headphones available.  We will, however, have plenty of earplugs on hand.
