Several tasks were successfully coordinated last week to allow for a switch back to the library's original main entrance that faces Newcomb Place.
The entrance switch over took place with little fanfare last Tuesday afternoon.
The main entrance to the library had been temporarily moved way back in October of 2012, at the very start of the project, to the Freret Street side of the building. The change back to the original entrance can be seen as another tangible sign that the construction project, set to end later this fall, is finally nearing completion.
The construction contractor plans to begin removing most if not all of the construction fence still occupying Newcomb Place on Sept. 7 or shortly thereafter.
