With the Webster Library Transformation project underway, there are now some brief closures and expectations of construction noise.

January 19 (11 p.m.) to January 20 (4 a.m.)

  • The study rooms and the computer workstations on the south side of LB2 will be unavailable.

January 19 to January 23 (nightly, from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.)

  • We expect there to be noise in the library due to the removal of tile and glass blocks by the stairwell on the north side of the library. In order to minimize the inconvenience caused by the noise, we have scheduled this work to take place on those days between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. when there are fewer people in the library.  Also, the stairwell is enclosed so there should not be any problems due to dust created by the removal.

January 21 (3 to 6 a.m.)

  • The Webster Library will be closed due to an electrical shutdown.

Until Fall 2015

  • East side of LB3 and the north staircase between LB2 and LB4 are closed temporarily for construction. Computers and DPrint machines were moved to LB4
  • Should you experience construction noise or disturbances that make it difficult to concentrate, we encourage you to visit other areas of the Webster Library or the Grey Nuns Reading Room on the Sir George Williams Campus or the Vanier Library on the Loyola Campus.
  • LB3 East (and the north stairwell) will reopen in Fall 2015 and will feature more open spaces, more natural light, two enclosed reading rooms, 204 seats at tables and 154 seats at carrels for silent study and 96 seats at tables equipped with desktop computers. That’s more than 450 individual spaces in response to concerns that you voiced in 2010 and 2013 surveys on library service for more quality study spaces.
