Although things remain peaceful and welcoming at Kresge, you may have noticed some disruption in Baker (specifically in Baker Main Hall). Renovations and updates are underway in Baker Main Hall, the News Room, and (eventually) in the Orozco Room as well.
Changes in Baker Main Hall are underway; the lighting fixtures are being changed out and work on electrical upgrades is about to start. Eventually, once those upgrades are completed, Baker Main Hall will be home to some new furniture and decorations. Beginning next week or the week after, you are likely to see more activity in the News Room as (de)construction begins in the process of setting up the new coffee service there. The library is working with the staff of the Hood Museum on changes which will be implemented around the Orozco murals. Lots of good changes happening…but if the noise and distraction of ongoing change gets to be too much for you, don’t forget that things are quiet, peaceful, and comfortable over here at Kresge. See you soon.
