The Forest Grove campus library has recently undergone development to expand the 24 hour study area, a project costing the university $48,000, according to Director of Facilities Management, Cindy Shchuppert. Isaac Gilman, Director of University Libraries said the work should be finished by the end of October.
A glass wall, fit with sliding doors, will soon close off the media commons from the rest of the library. According to Gilman, the doors will remain open during the library’s hours of operation so students may flow between the media commons and the rest of the library, as has always been the case.
Once the library closes, the doors between the media commons and other parts of the library will be locked and students may enter through the door currently leading to the 24 hours room or through a new door being constructed in the library’s main entrance.
