Dana Library Transformation Project

New Pathways

Route to northeast elevators to access all library floors

As shared in the previous post the central elevator and stairwell will no longer be accessible as of Monday, July 15th through April 2020. On Monday, temporary walls will be erected on the first, second and fourth floors to block access to these means of traversing the building.

Starting July 15th, to get to the lower level, first, second and fourth floors (when the fourth floor becomes accessible again) one will need to use the elevator and stairwell located on the northeast side of the building. See floor map above. We appreciate you patience with this change while we transform our building to make our library a more accessible and welcoming place!
