Sterling C. Evans Library Annex Enters Next Phase of Reconstruction

Access to Annex Will Be Altered But Still Available


COLLEGE STATION (February 13, 2017) – On February 20th at 9 a.m., Texas A&M University Libraries will move to the final part of the first phase of ReImagine construction. This part of the project will affect the front entrance to the Sterling C. Evans Library Annex, and will require students, faculty, and staff to enter through alternate doors near the regular entrance. While building access is altered, students will still be able to use the elevators and staircase to reach floors two through six, or enter the Annex through the Evans skywalk.

“We are doing a total rebuild of the vestibule at the entrance to the building and this can only be done safely by closing off all traffic through the main doors,” explained Pixey Mosley, Associate Dean for Administrative and Faculty Services at the Texas A&M University Libraries. “We had purposefully asked the contractors to leave this part until the end of the phase so as to try and minimize the detour time.”

The construction will require using the emergency exit double doors at the foot of the circular stairwell as the temporary main entrance and exit for the Evans Annex. These doors are located immediately to the left of the former front entrance. The modified entrance to the Annex is expected to reopen soon after Spring Break, March 2017.

Throughout the ReImagine campaign, the Libraries will be sharing updates and notifications through social media and through the library website.
