The rest of the carpet has arrived and the carpeting in the reference room is complete. There are still some supplies and equipment in the middle of the room that need to be removed, but once that is done the reference room will be reopened sometime later today (update – it’s now open). There are two small areas that still need to be carpeted. They are located in the east wing near the empty shelves at the front of the fiction and travel neighborhood shelving. These areas will be taped off, but shouldn’t impede use of any collections or rooms. These little sections should be carpeted on Monday. Thanks for dealing with the delay in this part of the project. I think the new carpet though will be worth the trouble.
