You may have noticed some really loud pounding and sawing noises in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library over the past few weeks and perhaps have seen some recent crane activity used to move heavy pieces of equipment up and out through the roof. The crane will be back in a week or so to help load in the new equipment, too.
All of this is related to an aggressive heating and cooling project that is now underway. The large air handlers that were a key part of the HVAC system that served the older part of the library are being removed and replaced with new. When the project is complete we can expect increased comfort and greater consistency of temperatures throughout the seasons. The loudest part of the project has been completed and by the end of March we hope to be finished. We thank you for your patience.
