Library Level 3 Annexe Now (Not) Open

Library Level 3 Annexe Now Open

The Level 3 Annexe of the Glasgow University Library has been closed for most of the summer and autumn, until today. I didn’t have the time to pop by inside the library annexe today so I’ll make sure I’ll get around to that tomorrow.

The newly-refurbished annexe contains “…study pods, group study areas, café facilities with comfortable seating, journals and newspapers.The University of Glasgow Library’s blog post on the subject provides a little more information, as well as interior photos.

You’ll notice that the outside garden area isn’t completely finished yet and there appears to still be some construction gear within, but regardless of these minor blemishes I kinda like the way the back of the library looks now. My question is, why didn’t they give the rest of the annexe part of the Library the same kind of cosmetic treatment?

**UPDATE** The refurbished annexe wing DID NOT open on Monday October 5th, hence the change of title. It opened the following day, although the cafe itself is still closed. For a picture of the inside, go here.

      …which would explain the presence of ladders and stressed out people in the area this afternoon. The post and the photos on the Library blog must’ve just been a tease.

  3. Sorry about the delay :(

    We ended up having to ask the contractors to do some additional work on an area of floor that became slippy during the time Library staff were viewing the area on the Friday. Unfortunately it wasn’t completed in time for the area to open when we had expected it to on Monday morning.

    Hopefully the wait was worth it :) The vending machines should be going into the new area in a few days time, if anyone wants to let us know what they’d like to see in the way of refreshment area machines or services just comment on the the Library blog and let us know.
