Bailey/Howe Renovation Updates

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

Bridge Rendering

In August of 2017, a bridge and library addition will connect a new residence hall to the Bailey/Howe Library’s H. Lawrence McCrorey Gallery. Throughout the spring semester, visitors will see and hear evidence of renovations, though the library will remain open. We’ll provide project updates here (see below) as the work progresses.

Seating in the McCrorey Gallery may be limited at times, but additional study space can be found on the library’s upper floors. The gallery’s multi-cultural art collection will be placed in temporary storage for preservation purposes during the renovation period and will be reinstalled with renewed visibility on completion.

The scope of work will include the construction of a 2,350 square foot addition to the library at the location where the new bridge will enter into the library’s second floor. The elevated bridge is being constructed as part of the First-Year Residence Hall and Dining Project, currently under construction. The new addition will expand student study space in the McCrorey Gallery, as well as provide a new home for the Media Resources service desk and associated programs.

McCrorey Gallery

Project updates:

January 17th – January 27th

During this period, there will be intermittent noise throughout the day as the steel supports are put into place for the

bridge. This work will primarily affect the first floor near the McCrorey Gallery and the second floor above the gallery

area.

January 2nd

The McCrorey Gallery and surrounding areas are in flux as we complete flooring installation and painting.

Many computers are offline at this time. Library faculty and staff can help you to locate available work stations.

Printing is available in the library’s Cyber Café.
