Odegaard Closed for Winter Break; Contractor Working in the Building

Ode­gaard Library is closed for Win­ter Break, Decem­ber 15, 2013 through Jan­u­ary 6, 2013. The library will re-open on Mon­day, Jan­u­ary 7 at 8am.

Our con­trac­tor, Morten­son Con­struc­tion, and sev­eral sub-contractors are mak­ing great progress on the ren­o­va­tion dur­ing the break.  Glass walls on the third floor are being built.  What the con­trac­tors call the “dance floor”  will be removed; it pro­vided access to build the sky­light and the wood slat ceil­ing.  Sof­fits on the 2nd and 3rd floors are being painted (and repaired where needed.)  The ren­o­va­tion of the entry lobby on the 1st floor has begun. The lobby is being divided approx­i­mately in half with the north side planned to be a com­fort­able seat­ing area. For now, that side of the lobby will con­tinue to be used as the entry lobby.

Odegaard Expands Hours for the Weekend Before Finals Week

Michael Kutz, ASUW Direc­tor of Uni­ver­sity Affairs, approached the Ode­gaard Library with a request to expand library hours dur­ing the week­end before finals week. We are happy to announce that we will be open 24 hours from Fri­day, Decem­ber 7 until Fri­day, Decem­ber 14 at 5pm.

On the week­end before finals, only UW stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff with a cur­rent Husky Card may enter the build­ing dur­ing the fol­low­ing time peri­ods:  Fri­day, Decem­ber 7 at 6pm to Sat­ur­day,  Decem­ber 8 at noon; and Sat­ur­day, Decem­ber 8 at 6pm to Sun­day, Decem­ber 9 at noon.  Dur­ing finals week, a cur­rent Husky Card is required for entry between 8pm and 8am.
