The reopening of the Clark Library is just around the corner, but first we must close to the public from August 2-11, according to Diane Sotak, library. This will give library staff a chance to move into the building and test drive the facility before reopening on August 12. The paging service and pick-ups for Summit materials will also be suspended on August 1, so please plan accordingly if know you will need something during the closure. Our usual online resources will still be available, as well as interlibrary loan (ILL) service for article requests.
Most of the furniture for the renovated Clark Library has been delivered and is in the process of being assembled and arranged, according to Diane Sotak, library. The previous building had seating for 400 and now there is a wide variety of seating for 700. The seating is colorful and includes task chairs, easy chairs, booths, and couches. The next phase will be installing the technology hardware, such as computers, flat screens, and digital lab equipment. For more information contact the library at 7111 or see the “Transforming the UP Library” blog at http://wordpress.up.edu/library/.
