While tearing up the old carpeting in the Microfilm Reading Room workers made a very pleasant discovery. After the old carpet was removed and then a layer of battleship linoleum gone, workers discovered that the original marble flooring was still there, hidden away for ages and waiting to be enjoyed again. As you can imagine, the library staff was very pleased with this discovery and the marble flooring is going to be cleaned, restored and brought back to its original glory for all of you to enjoy when you visit the library. All of the restoration projects are proceeding well and we will keep posting more updates for you as the work progresses.
Thank you again for your patience as we work to preserve and renovate your library.
