East concourse of library open after months of construction
Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, January 31, 2017
The renovation of the east concourse in Hesburgh Library has finished after over two months of work.
The construction on the concourse started Nov. 20 in anticipation of the establishment of the Scholars Lounge, a new study space across from Au Bon Pain. The new lounge opened Dec. 1.
One feature of the concourse’s transformation is the introduction of floor to ceiling glass on the second level of the center concourse; staff spaces on the first and fourth floors were also improved.
An open house to showcase both the new Scholars Lounge and the newly opened concourse is being held Thursday from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
