Research Room Lunchtime Closures, July 5th - July 12th

When a section of the library system has only two people working in it, and one of those people is not available to work (for family, vacation, or medical reasons), we cannot tag-team lunchtimes as is our customary practice. Therefore, once again the Research Room must close Noon to 1:00pm to comply with Federal Labor laws. Due to a temporary staff shortage, the lunchtime Research Room closures will continue from July 5th through July 12th.
Heads up: The other staff member will be out of the office August 1st - August 5th. We'll have to close the Research Room Noon to 1:00pm then, too.
