The work to replace casings for a new jack for the Downtown public elevator is completed, and the Downtown Library is open. The last phase of the work is scheduled for next week, and we anticipate another closure for the installation of the new jack. That work is scheduled to occur on Wednesday, August 27. The public elevator is not functioning, and those visiting the Library who are not able to use the stairs should ask for assistance. Staff will escort them through the building using the freight elevator.
Any HOLD items remaining at Traverwood that originated Downtown, have been returned to Downtown and are available Downtown. The period for picking up these items will be extended through Friday, August 29. We realize this has been an inconvenience for many, and we do apologize.
The elevator work is nearing completion, but another closure will occur and while we expect that to happen on Wednesday, August 27, one thing we have learned is that things can change. Please check back here for updates and an announcement about next week's closure.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
