The End and the Beginning….

Last Friday at  5:00  after a few delays, the Bora Laskin Law Library building closed for renovations.  On Monday July 29th the library will re-open  with our core collection at Birge-Carnegie in place.

The last photo, 5:00 on Friday (well approximately, that clock was never too accurate) closing the Library for the last time.

For those of us at the library who have been at  Bora Laskin since the doors opened  it was a bittersweet moment.   Chief Librarian John Papadopoulos shares some of his memories of his time at here as a student and as a librarian in this recorded conversation.

The shelves have been emptied and the books moved out in preparation for the renovation.

It is a little sad to see the place so empty

In the meantime at our temporary digs at Birge Carnegie,  staff are already unpacking their offices, the phones are working and most of the computers are set up.
