  • Summer HVAC Replacement - updated June 24

    Jun 15, 2016

    This summer the HVAC (Air Conditioning) System is being replaced.   For the majority of this work (June 15 - July 16) there will be no air conditioning in the library.

    Currently only the Main Level of the library is open to patrons.  If you need materials from other levels, library staff will pull items for you.  We recommend that you place requests for SPU materials online; you will receive an email when items are ready for pickup.  Please ask at the front desk (206-281-2228) if you need help placing requests.

    Here are the dates each floor is expected to have construction:

    June 16-June 29 - 3rd Level
    June 20-July 6 - 2nd Level
    June 22-July 13 - Main Level
    June 24-July 16 - Lower Level.  

    Please pardon our mess and additional noise during this construction.
