Due to a breakage in the Reading Room sprinkler system, after hours key-card access will be disabled as of 5pm today until repairs can be completed. The work is being done as quickly as possible, but may take up to a couple of weeks.

During this time, please visit the library during normal operating summer hours to retrieve Reading Room materials or to check out any items at the Circulation Desk.  The rest of the library is unaffected and may be accessed as usual.
