Fisher Library Condensation Control Project

Beginning Wednesday November 16, there are going to some changes to the Fisher's entrance over the next few months as we begin an important renovation project.

We are renovating the libary to improve the thermal performance of the exterior, which will prevent condensation inside the building. Once complete, the new exterior will match the existing look of the building.

Entrance to the Fisher Library during renovations

During construction, entrance to the Fisher Library will be through either the east or west staircase of Robarts Library at various times during the project. Signage will be posted regarding these changes as they occur. The main entrance from St. George Street to Robarts Library will be accessible at all times.

Timelines and construction updates

On November 16, fencing will go up on the southeast side of the building, including the southeast exterior staircase (facing St. George Street). The renovations are expected to be completed by April 2017.

Every effort will be made to minimize disruption during the process. Construction updates will be posted to the Fisher web site over the course of the project.

Thank you for your understanding as we complete these critical repairs to protect the rare and irreplaceable cultural and historical treasures housed within the library.
