Temporary entrances for both the Central and Divinity libraries will be in place beginning Saturday, May 15. Access to the Central Library will be through the door on the south end of the building by Library Lawn. The Divinity Library entrance will be via the south end of the breezeway, which is on the 21st Ave. side of the building. Both temporary entrances will have handicap access, with handicap parking available in the Frist Hall/Godchaux parking lot to the south of the General Library Building. Signs and banners will be posted to highlight the new entrances.
The temporary entrances are necessary as the creation of the Central Library’s 8th floor student lounge nears completion and the renovation of the General Library Building enters its second phase. Over the summer improvements to the 4th floor Central lobby and reference areas will also take place. In addition, work will be underway on a new enclosed exhibit space and entrance to the Divinity Library on the 2nd floor, including the addition of a new handicap access ramp on the north side of the building.
