|Library Annex Re-Roofing: Oh No! Don't Let the Rain Come Down!
|Over the next 3-4 weeks,
the Law Library Annex will be noisier than usual because of roof
replacement. Until 8 or 9 am each morning, there will be construction
noise as the roofers remove sections of the roof each day. It’s possible
that we will be able to hear footsteps and a generator running throughout
the day as the roofers add new sections of roofing. The contractor has
promised to keep smells to a minimum and has assured us that the roofing
materials are not a health hazard.
There’s never a good time for construction. Luckily, we were able to
negotiate a construction date for the start of this semester as opposed
to the start date during final exams that was originally proposed. We
appreciate your patience during the project.
| Good Luck to Jeff Satterfield!
