Circ Desk & First Floor Improvements Ahead

Mann's student assistants looking forward to improvements coming soon to Mann's circ desk!

When the library gets a little emptier during the summer weeks, what do library staff do? They get busy making things better.

Over the next eight weeks, visitors coming through Mann Library’s front doors will see us working on some important upgrades to the first floor:

We expect to be done with circulation desk changes by mid-August—meaning all new and returning students and faculty will find more accessible, efficient and streamlined services provided via a newly reconfigured circulation desk facility back at the usual spot. We expect the re-carpeting of the first floor to be done by September. For now, please pardon our noise and our mess—and stay tuned for some nice improvements ahead!
