Demolition of Meyer Library is proceeding on schedule, and demo on the exterior structure of the building is slated to begin on February 9th. The concrete structure of the building will be crushed on site, and this work is going to be both loud and dusty. All possible steps will be taken to mitigate the dust and noise, including distribution of earplugs for staff and patrons, but staff should be prepared for some disruption in the area around Green Library.
