Education Library moving within Sangren
May 17, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's Education Library will relocate within Sangren Hall beginning Monday, May 24.
Located in the south wing of Sangren since the building opened in 1964, the library will move to Sangren Rooms 1101-05, 1210-12 and 1301-08 for about two years, at which time the library's home in the new Sangren Hall will be ready.
During the move, reserve services will be available in 3307 Sangren, as well as pulling titles requested, with 24-hour turnaround. Both will be available during normal summer hours, Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Also beginning May 24, the Visual Resources Library in Sangren will close permanently, and its collection of slides will move to the Music and Dance Library in the Dalton Center. The video and DVD collection moved from Sangren to Waldo Library in 2009.
The south wing is scheduled for demolition in June to make way for the new Sangren Hall. The north wing will remain in use until the new building is ready for occupancy--projected as fall of 2012--after which the north wing will be demolished.
