Week 43 Part A: Opening preparations

Countway Library will re-open its (newly renovated) doors to Harvard Longwood students on Wednesday, January 6th at 9:00 am. A small group of us were on site today to prepare and attend to any last-minute details. Below is a picture collage of some of the preparations being made, including but not limited to signage, confirmation of Crimson Clear checkpoint, removal of furniture to adhere to proper capacity limits, branded masks and name tags for staff. The renovation project is wrapping up and the building is being deep cleaned all day today and tomorrow. Cleaning kits for study spaces arrive tomorrow, and Safety Ambassadors have received their schedules and training PowerPoint. It is very exciting to see months of planning come to life!
