They needed to make changes to the Heating/ventilation/air conditoning (HVAC) system), so they turned it off on Tuesday, Oct. 8, and expected it it to remain off until perhaps as late as Monday, Oct. 28.
Now (let's hypothesize) a little girl named Goldilocks may want to visit the building. On some days, it might be a bit warm, possibly even hot.
On other days, it might be a little cooler than expected.
"We will have fans blowing outside air into the building, but we will not have air conditioning or heat," the library warns on its website.
So, Goldilocks, you may want to bring a sweater on a cooler day or a thin shirt on a warmer one.
But, as much as possible, the library is hoping that doing it this time of year will result in the temperatures being just right -- or as close to just right as possible:
"We specifically choose this time of year to do the project, because it is the season where outside temperatures are usually a little cooler than inside, and thus outside air should be as effective as possible in keeping the building at a comfortable temperature."
Better news: Just about the entire parking lot is open again. It had been closed as underground cables were laid down for a new emergency generator (a separate project from the HVAC changes). The library is planning to close the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 23, until 1 p.m. as more work is done on the HVAC system, and then again on Monday, Nov. 4 as wiring is switched for the new generator.
