As of this afternoon, people entering the Armstrong building on the 3rd Street side are greeted by signs like this:
That's because, beyond the library entrance, before you get to the lobby and the food court, some men are building a wall:
The library staff was not sure why this wall is being built. They were told it had something to do with building an underground parking garage. Meanwhile, the library now has a back door so patrons can access the washrooms (hard to find anyway, but they're behind the food court) as well as the stairs to the skywalks.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall. I'll miss seeing the stream of people walking through this hallway as I study. But I suppose underground parking garages, like bypasses, have got to be built.
