Study Spaces Remodeling

The Library will be undertaking some major changes this summer that will provide silent study space, new furniture, and nicer study spaces. In order to do this, we need to temporarily close down all of our study rooms. In the meantime, if you are in need of quiet space, please ask the Library staff to help you find an area in the Library where you can study. We apologize for the inconvenience but since our summer months are fairly slow, we decided to do this now so that we disrupt as few of our students as possible.

The Library will remain open all summer but the study rooms will close. Thank you.

Roof Repair Complete

Our new roof is done! We hope that you will walk by and admire the wonderful work, including new copper on the cupola, dormers, and downspouts (along with the Texas Lone Stars). Although the fence has been removed, there is still landscaping work to complete. Once the grass is in and the bushes replaced this entire project will be done. Thank you for your patience during this project.

Roof Repair Progress


Crews have been diligently working at the Blagg-Huey Library since early December to provide us with a new roof. Although there have been some weather delays, the project is on schedule and will be completed by the summer of 2017. You will notice the new copper work on the cupola, which was recently completed. The new shingles that have been installed are very attractive and bring out the building’s white dormers. As the crews work, certain areas of the 3rd floor may be temporarily taped off for safety reasons. Library staff are happy to relocate anyone who is inconvenienced or bothered by the noise (earplugs are available at the Information Desk). The Library remains open its regular hours during the construction period. We appreciate your patience while this project is being done.

Roof Repair to begin Nov. 28


Crews will be at the library on Monday (11/28) to begin installing fencing. The entire building will be fenced off except for the front entrance. The roof replacement is scheduled to be completed by Summer 2017. Regular updates on the project will be available on the library webpage. There will be some noise due to the construction. Patrons can check out earplugs from the Circulation Desk. The project is being done in three phases so as the workers proceed, library staff will help redirect our users to a quieter space as needed.

Library roof repair to begin soon; Library will stay open during regular hours

Repairs to the roof of Blagg-Huey Library will begin soon. Library will be open during regular hours. Scaffolding fences will surround the library building. Facilities Management will do their best to limit the noise as much as possible. The roof construction project is scheduled to be completed before Summer 2017, but is subject to change due to weather and construction delays. We will keep you updated about the progress.
