WKU Libraries is transforming spaces and trading places on the fourth floor of Cravens to develop a new Information Commons area for its students, faculty and staff.
Beginning at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 28 through Jan. 2, the entrance to Cravens fourth floor will be closed and individuals needing library services will use the Java City/Helm entrance.
“Patrons may have already noticed books, tables, chairs and other items disappearing from the floor,” said Connie Foster, Interim Dean of WKU Libraries.
The newly redesigned floor will have varied and flexible seating, collaborative areas for study, 28 computers, two email stations, four laptop charging stations, and a fresh updated look.
Access to the fifth through ninth floors of Cravens will be available from the second floor of Helm. Beginning Sept. 26, Circulation Services will be relocated to Helm first floor next to the Reference Desk. In addition, The Writing Center will be moved to the same area in Helm. Any student needing disability accommodations can call (270) 745-3951 for assistance.
“We apologize for this interruption during the semester but our goal is to open by January and realize a very inviting, functional and updated library environment for the future,” Foster said.
Patrons can check out the WKU Libraries website for updates at www.wku.edu/library.
