Heads up: Schedule Adjustment Next Week

The BDC Research Room must close a half-day on Wed., Apr. 27th.

Please make plans to do your research between 10 am until 1 pm on Apr. 27th.

We must close at 1 pm for the day due to staff and substitute staff shortages and prior obligations of the BDC@ The Branches series.

We are sorry to have to inconvenience you, but so few can only do so much.
