The east entrance of the Texas Tech University Libraries, the side that shares the courtyard with the Student Union Building, will endure renovations in the Croslin Room throughout the summer. Construction begins at the end of May and is anticipated to be completed before classes begin this fall 2016.
Dean of Libraries Bella Gerlich said the renovations include leveling the sunken and fountain areas and removing partition walls in order to allow for more space.
During construction, the Croslin Room will remain accessible with limited seating on the north and south ends. In addition, Sam's Express will be open with normal summer hours.
Because of the limited area available during renovation, no events will be held in the Croslin Room during the summer.
