Beginning Tuesday, October 16, the Library's light fixtures on the first, second, and third floors will receive an upgrade.
As of July 14, 2012, the Department of Energy mandated the production of T12 lamps (bulbs) will be phased out. The fixtures on the first three floors of the building use T12 lamps. The project beginning Tuesday will replace the ballasts, bulbs, and light covers for all T12 fixtures in the building and replace them with T8 components. At the end of the project the Library's lighting will be more consistent through the building and slightly brighter.
In order for this work to take place banks of lights will be turned off for periods of time during the day hours. Your favorite study location may have dim lighting at some point. Please see the friendly folks at the Circulation Desk if you need assistance locating a different location to study.
They will begin on the second floor on Tuesday.
Thanks for your patience!
