First Floor West Enhancements to Begin

Starting with the week of July 7 a month-long project to enhance the west side of the Paley Library first floor will result in some service disruptions to the Temple University Community. While this will cause some short-term inconveniences to you, our library users, we greatly anticipate our ability to serve you better in what will be a more functional, comfortable and attractive space. During the next month we will be moving furniture, laying new carpet, creating a consolidated leisure and new book reading area, providing new computer workstations with updated computer equipment, additional scanners, more collaborative work tables, a new reference desk location, a new display area, adding a news/media area and creating a small cafe for beverages and refreshments. As a result there will be times when computers will not be accessible. To minimize the loss of some computer access we will be adding additional computer work areas on the upper levels of Paley Library.

These renovations and additions to Paley Library will result in an even better facility for study, research and collaboration. We do apologize in advance for any inconveniences this may cause for our user community. We greatly appreciate your understanding and patience so that we can achieve a better Paley Library. For daily questions about computer availability we recommend you call our Reference Desk at 215-204-8212. If you do have any questions or concerns about this project please contact Steven Bell, Associate University Librarian for Research and Instructional Services.
