Story posted December 20, 2004

During Bowdoin College's upcoming winter break, the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library will begin the second phase of a renovation project that began several years ago with improvements to the first floor, basement level, and Special Collections Department.

In this second phase, which will be carried out over the College's winter break (December 20-January 24) and next summer, a sprinkler fire suppression system and new lighting will be installed on the second and third floors of the Library.

Construction will start Tuesday, December 21, and for several weeks all collections on the second and third floors will be unavailable. This includes books with call numbers DA-LT (primarily history, anthropology, social sciences, political science and education), and books in the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance Collection.

All second and third floor collections will again be accessible by the start of the College's spring semester, January 24, 2005.

The Hawthorne-Longfellow Library will observe the winter break hours of Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., from Monday, December 20, through Friday, January 21. The facility is closed December 24-27 and December 30-January 2.

The Special Collections and Archives Department will close from Tuesday, December 21, through Monday, December 27, and will resume its regular hours on Tuesday, December 28.
