Saturday, November 26: Schulich Library - temperature fluctuation

On  Saturday, November 26 from 3am to 5pm, Facilities will be performing renovation work that will affect temperatures in the Schulich Library of Physical Sciences, Life Sciences and Engineering. The steam distribution system in the Macdonald-Stewart Library Building (Schulich Library) will be shut down in order to fix six leaks before the winter season sets in. As a result, library users may experience colder than normal temperatures. Spaces will be open for study but users should dress accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
