Wheelchair Access During Break

Fire alarm upgrades in Draper Hall will briefly interrupt the usual route for wheelchair access into the Library. On Friday, March 11th, Draper's basement and ramp will close at 3pm and remain closed until 7am Saturday. Building access and egress for Dewey can be conducted via the Husted ramp during that time. On Monday the 14th, Draper's 1st floor will close at 3pm, as will the peristyle from Husted to Draper. If you need to access the library during this time, please call the circulation desk at (518) 442-3693 to request assistance coming in through our group study room, which is accessible via the ramp leading to Draper's basement, which will be open at that time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

As always, help is available! Contact the Circulation Desk at (518) 442-3693 or the Reference Desk at (518) 442-3691.
