Mullins Renewal Construction

We’re getting ready for a great Fall!

  • Levels 3 and 4 remain closed for renovation and are expected to reopen Fall 2021.
  • The main Mullins collection will be moving from level 1 to the newly renovated Level 3 over the next months. The southwest elevator will be closed to accomodate this move.
    Need an item from the collection? Use the Request this item button in the library catalog. We'll pull the book for you and send an email when it is ready for pick up.
  • The East entrance of Mullins remains closed for mechanical work. We apologize for the inconvenience.
