The main rotunda door (south door) is currently the only entrance and exit door for the Library. The north door facing the green space in front of Lester Hall remains exit only until 4th floor renovations are completed.

Housekeeping teams are cleaning and disinfecting Library spaces daily and nightly; with special attention to high touch areas such as tables, carrels, light switches and doorknobs throughout the day.
