> SUSPENSION OF SERVICES AT THE HUB, BLDG. 5305
Building 5305, "The Hub", will undergo re-carpeting during December 2014; although we attempted to minimize the impact on our patrons, we couldn't eliminate it altogether. With the exception of the library, which will be unavailable for two weeks, most programs will be affected for only about a week during the time work is scheduled for their areas.
