Because rain prevented WMECO from doing the work they had planned on the east side of Longmeadow Street this morning, they've rescheduled that job for Tuesday, November 26, 2013, when the Hatch Library building will be without power between 8:00am and 12:00 noon.
Since the library is already scheduled to be open until 10:00pm Monday, 11/25, and Tuesday, and most students will be off campus by the time we close for the Thanksgiving break at 12:00 noon Wednesday, 11/27, four Hatch librarians will provide library services Tuesday morning from other locations on the Longmeadow campus. We'll announce the exact locations, the librarians assigned to each of them, and the specific hours when we'll be working there on Monday, 11/25.
We apologize for this added inconvenience (which, again, is obviously not our preference), but we hope you'll seek research help as you may need it from any of our "roving" librarians around campus on Tuesday morning. And remember that the Hatch web site will also be available throughout the rescheduled power outage: library.baypath.edu.
