We are excited to announce that the lower level of the NIH Library will be renovated starting August 24. We have been working with architects and designers to plan enhancements for the space with a focus on expanding the capabilities and upgrading the aesthetics throughout the area. Renovations will include improved rooms for quiet study, new training spaces with enhanced technology, and comfortable work areas.
What You Need to Know
The renovation will begin on Thursday, August 24, and is estimated to take approximately six months. During that time, the Library bathrooms will remain open but the lower level study area and NIH Library print collection will not be accessible to Library patrons.
To accommodate these changes, additional study desks have been moved to the main level of the Library. Additionally, we will provide on-demand retrieval for print materials from our collection. To request print materials during the renovation, visit the Information Desk in the Library, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 301-496-1080.
Please be aware that during the renovation, the Library may experience noise disruptions. We are coordinating with the facility planners to anticipate and minimize the impact of construction activities on Library customers and staff as much as possible. We hope you share our enthusiasm for the improvements that are coming to the NIH Library, and ask for your understanding and patience during the renovation. If you have questions or concerns, please email email@example.com or call 301-496-1080.
