The Subject is Washrooms

Which do you want first? The good news? Or the bad news? Let's start with...

The Good: The renovations of the washrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors have (finally) been completed and they have reopened. New plumbing and fixtures, new walls and floors, new everything. They're not 35 years old anymore.

Followed by The Bad: Now that they've finished the upstairs washrooms, they can start working on the ones on the main floor. In fact, "start" means tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00 am.

Which means that for the foreseeable future there will be no washroom facilities on the library's first floor. But which may not be as dire as it sounds. It just means you will have to get some exercise (or take the elevator) traveling to the aforementioned nice new ones upstairs. And remember that there are also washrooms not so far away in the Atrium and the now-connected-to-the-library-so-you-don't-have-to-go-outside Burke Building.

Of course, and unfortunately, none of this will happen quietly. A certain amount of the now-familiar drilling, hammering and pounding with which the Library has been plagued so much in recent months is inevitable. At least there is a plan in place to have the noisiest work end each day at noon.

And that's enough about washrooms...
