Accident at the Law Library - Library open but front door and driveway sealed off

A free-standing ornamental wall fell over and smashed a large window at the Nahum Gelber Law Library, filling a corridor with large sandstone bricks. Fortunately, no one was injured but we are concerned about another free-standing wall of the same type. At the moment, our front door and driveway have been sealed off, but we are staying open. Access can be gained through Old and New Chancellor Day Halls.
