Starting Monday, June 12th, demo on the 4th floor Annex walls and terrazzo flooring in front of the elevator lobby will begin. This will mean the skywalk will be initially closed to all traffic.
Once the demo is completed, limited access will be restored to staff taking materials between the two buildings until carpet installation begins. Please begin planning your route changes accordingly. Currently there is no definitive timeline for how long the demo of the terrazzo flooring will take. Updates to come.
Texas A&M Libraries is being Renovated
Texas A&M University Libraries have begun an extensive renovation of Sterling C. Evans Library and Annex to enhance student study and service areas. The reconstruction campaign, ReImagine, will continue through 2017. During this time, access to and from both buildings will remain open. While some floors will be cordoned off for reconstruction, ample room will still be available for students in preparation for upcoming finals.
The scope of the project includes major enhancements to Evans 2nd, Annex 1st floor, and Annex 4th floor, along with a reconfiguration of the 1st floor Evans service desk. Students will enjoy increased access to power outlets in the remodeled spaces, redesigned collaborative study areas, library classrooms with enhanced technology and the ability for more interactive, hands-on instruction. Architecturally, study and service areas will be more open and collaborative to allow students easier access to receiving help from librarians and staff for research and technological needs.
Throughout the ReImagine campaign the Libraries will be sharing updates and notifications through social media and on this microsite.
