High Levels of Construction Noise Anticipated at Olin Library


Grab your earplugs! Construction noise related to the Olin Library Transformation is expected to gear up beginning on Wednesday, September 28, at 7 a.m., and continue through Friday, September 30, at 4 p.m.

During the daytime hours, from 7 a.m.– 5:30 p.m., Olin visitors should expect intermittent building vibrations and potentially high levels of noise, especially in and near the southeast quadrant of Olin (the area near Whispers on all levels of the library). We strongly encourage you to use other areas of the building, or to visit one of WU’s departmental libraries! Departmental library hours vary, so remember to check them in advance.

If you choose to stay in Olin, remember that free ear plugs are available in five locations: the Help Desk, the Special Collections reading room, and The Writing Center on Level 1; the Arc on Level A; and the Center for Diversity & Inclusion on Level 2.
