As part of the Library’s ongoing renovations, the various wiring conduits in the three Media and Discussion Rooms on LG1 need to be relocated. Unfortunately, this involves some very noisy work, as the contractor cuts the concrete walls for the new conduits.
This work is now scheduled for this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, 8-9 November). We apologise for the noise – please be understanding as we work to improve the media rooms.
We need your comments on some furniture samples for the 1/F and LG1 renovations!
Please visit the furniture samples area on LG1 behind the Media Counter, and write your comments on the posted sheets of paper.
So far, we have several low and high chairs for you to evaluate. More furniture samples will be coming in a week or so, including a table or two.
All of 1/F, and part of LG1 will undergo some renovation during the next couple months.
We will work with the contractors to reduce the disturbance, especially as the exam period approaches.
Please be understanding as we work to improve the Library’s study environments.

The Library is planning to refurbish part of 1/F study space and LG1 area at Media Resources.

We are now at the stage of getting a designing firm. If you have any suggestions, please contact us at email@example.com.
The Learning Commons opens 24 hours, 7 days a week, from today until the end of the semester.
