Beginning May 18, 2015, a number of projects to improve the environment within Himmelfarb Library will begin. Work will continue until August 7, 2015. The improvements include a complete overhaul of the heating/cooling system and the refurbishment of the second floor small group study rooms.
What does this mean for students?
- The Himmelfarb Library will remain open throughout this period. 24/7 hours will continue until June 30, 2015. During the month of July 2015, the Library will be on summer hours: 7:30 am until midnight daily. Starting August 1, 2015, the Library will resume its 24/7 hours. There will be chillers and fans placed throughout the Library to help keep temperatures regulated.
- If you find that the Library is too warm, alternate quiet study space has been reserved for you in Gelman Library (H St. between 22nd & 23rd). Gelman’s summer hours will be posted at http://library.gwu.edu/hours#holidays.
- There may be some construction noise on the second floor during the day only. Again you may want to study at Gelman. Earplugs will be available at Himmelfarb’s 1st Floor Circulation Desk.
Please remember that these renovations should make the Himmelfarb Library a more comfortable place to study. Should you have any questions, please contact the Office of Facilities Management at 202-994-5755.
