Although these dates may change, the main reading room is expected to reopen on December 1 and the mezzanine is expected to reopen on February 1.

Researchers seeking materials in the library’s main library’s collections are advised that staff will have limited or no access to collections during these renovations and are urged to contact the library staff via email ( for inquiries regarding access to materials in advance of a planned visit. Staff will do everything possible to access needed materials, but there may be some delays in doing so.
