Library Renovation and Expansion 2018-19: Overview

Exterior of Gould Library

Gould Memorial Library on the main campus in Brunswick is undergoing a major renovation and expansion.

Changes will include an open floor plan, more study rooms, active learning space, and a new conference room and maker space. The offices of the ATTIC tutoring services will be in the expanded library.

The project is scheduled to be completed in June 2019. Meanwhile, we realize that our students, faculty, and staff may be inconvenienced by the construction. Earplugs are available at the Circulation Desk, and our staff is available to help you.

We appreciate your patience! 

CAUTION: Please do not cross any roped off or blocked off construction areas. Your safety is important to us.
