There are a few changes you need to know when accessing the Library this year. The first thing you need to know is that access to the Library is only via the tunnel; the cloister walk between Tower and the Library is closed to traffic. This change was made with the sisters' safety in mind. The second thing you need to know is the stairwells in the Library are one-way only. The front stairwell is designated as up only, and the back stairwell down only. Finally, we are not allowing any eating in the Library this year. Please eat your meals in the areas on campus where eating is expected. You may still bring a beverage (as long as it has a cover on it) into the Library, but no food is allowed this year. Thank you for your help keeping the CSS community safe!
