The Education Library renovation project has been long in the making. Since opening in 1980, the only updates to the library were the addition of study rooms a few summers ago, meaning that it has been difficult to cater to the rapid advances in technology and, ultimately, the faculty and students who are constant patrons.
Although some light infrastructure work has already begun, the UF College of Education welcomed guests to a formal groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, March 23, marking the official start of the heavier work on the long-awaited rehabilitation of historic Norman Hall.
Our first significant parking challenge related to construction is about to happen. Please be advised that the small parking lot on the northeast side of Norman near the credit union (corner of SW 5th Avenue and SW 12th Street) will be mostly closed soon. Green construction fencing will be installed in most of the parking lot and the lot will be inaccessible.
Work on the stairwell inside the library (originally scheduled to begin around Feb. 7) has been delayed due to engineering concerns required on-site verification. However, the work should commence within the next few days so… expect loud noises. The stairwell is located on the east side of the Education Library (the side that is near the New Norman elevator) although noise will certainly carry throughout the area.
