Ch…Ch…Ch…Changes…

Have you stopped by the library lately?  Yes? It’s already starting to look a little different isn’t it?

For those of you who haven’t stopped by in the last couple weeks, we’ve begun the move and it’s in full swing again this week! By the end of the day today, the Archives will be almost completely moved over to Avila Hall. It already looks pretty bare in there! Throughout the week, this week, you’ll also notice the offices and desk areas clearing out or random pieces of furniture just chilling in the middle of the room. As the (rather cheesy) signs around campus will say “pardon our progress”. It’s going to be a little messy and a little noisy in here and Avila Hall this week as we make our final preparations for the “big move” next week.

So what, exactly is happening this week? Here is a peek at our schedule:

3/24-3/28:

  • Pack Circulation Desk & Offices

  • Complete Archives move. Clear Archives area and storage spaces

  • Pack up student DVD’s and Reserves

  • Begin pick up & delivery for furniture not traveling to Avila Hall

  • Organize all loose & current periodicals for move.

  • Move offices & circ. non-essentials to Avila Hall

3/27:

  • Library moving party!

3/28-3/30:

  • Pack up laptops, cases, DVD cameras, tripods, play scripts, etc.

3/31-4/6:

  • Library Closed

  • Movers move all storage materials to containers and St. Paul’s books to Avila Hall

  • Move computers to Avila Hall

4/7:

  • Library reopens in Avila Hall

That is our basic timeline. At this moment, the library staff are alternately doing their jobs and packing up their work life. It’s very weird to see these offices and spaces emptying out so quickly. It’s entirely possible that the cage “protecting” the Archives area will be coming down tomorrow! While we all work to make this transition as painless as possible, please bear with us, as we will still be making a little noise and one heck of a mess! You’ll notice that on the 27th we have a library moving party; this party is being “thrown” by Student Life and is (of course) open to the student body. We are waiting on official times, but I do believe it will begin around 5PM. We hope to see you there! We need all the support we can get 🙂

As always, if you need anything or have questions regarding the move or the library in general please feel free to get in touch with us on here, Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail at hooleybundschulib@gmail.com

OH!! Stay tuned for some pictures and video of the move so far!
