Scheduled Maintenance Work in Green Library

Electricity in the Green Library will be turned off on Saturday May 3 around 5:00pm to allow FLP to repair a persistent problem in our electrical system. They expect to restore power by Sunday morning (May 4).

During this period, our servers will be without power so our website, the library catalog, and all electronic databases and journals will not be available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
