Besore Library Closing at 2:30, Friday

Due to the heat advisory and crippled air conditioning, Besore Library is closing this afternoon, effective at 2:30.  Temperatures inside the building now exceed 85 degrees, making everyone uncomfortable.  It is unsafe for library staff to continue to work in these conditions.

We hope to have the library open from 9-1 tomorrow, Saturday, after the AC recovers during the night.  Please check here for updates.

Thank you.
