Library Reducing Energy Costs

Work will begin in the Library May 20th to reduce the level of lighting in specific parts of our building.  We'll be disabling some ceiling light panels, resulting in an alternating off/on pattern.  This on/off pattern has been in place for many, many years on most of the third floor and has been a great success.  Applying this pattern to the fourth floor, and a few other locations in the building, will save energy and reduce our energy costs.  

In addition, we'll be adding daylight sensors to the light fixtures around the perimeter of each floor.  These sensors will turn on the perimeter lights when it senses the light level coming through the windows has decreased and will turn off the lights when the light level outside is high.

We'll also be replacing some high-wattage fixtures on the second and third floors.

In order for this work to continue portions of our building will have reduced lighting at different times during the day.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you need assistance finding a different location to study, or if you need help locating materials in an affected area, please contact the Circulation Desk on the second floor.  The work should be completed by early July. 

Thank you for your patience!
