    This fall, a Port City Java will open in the space formerly occupied by Java City and include many enhancements to the location and improvements in service.  Construction in the area is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 8th and extend until approximately August 1st.   To ensure the safety of our patrons, access to the area will be restricted to construction crew members and other authorized persons during this time.

    Inevitably, the construction of Port City Java will result in increased ambient noise in the library.  In an effort to reduce disruption for our users, Randall Library has worked with crew members to ensure that cutting and sawing will occur outside the building whenever possible.   Additionally, no noise-causing construction will take place during the Summer II final exam period (July 29th and 30th).

    Port City Java is one of several projects underway in the library this summer. Check back for updates and information.

    Thank you for your patience during this transition. We hope you are as excited as we are about Port City Java’s newest location!
