Suggestions and Comments
Will there be quiet floors in the new part of the library during the second
phase? What about when the library is completed?

SUBJECT: Construction Progress - Phase II
We apologize for not responding sooner to your excellent question. The group coordinating the plans for the library during the second phase discussed the first question yesterday. Seating during phase two will be extremely limited, and the group's conclusion was that the best way to serve our customers will be to review use patterns after the move to decide which areas will be quiet and which will not.
We have not discussed quiet floors the completed building, but it is fairly likely that the third and fourth floors will be quiet floors since they will have the fewest computers and will be arranged more or less the way they are now. The Lorimer Reading Room will remain a quiet area when it becomes available again.
Please let us know if you have other questions.
