NOTICE: The internal stairwell in the Library was closed today to begin the framing of the new wall around the stairwell. To access the 4th and 5th floors, please use the internal library elevator.  If the elevator is out of service, the north exterior stairwell ( Tulane Avenue side) will be opened to users of the Library to travel between the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors.  Please do not go above or below these floors in the exterior stairwell, as the alarm will sound when the doors are opened.   Construction of temporary handrails for the Library stairs should be completed by next week.  At that time, the internal staircase will be reopened.
