Limited phone service at DML

June 17, 2010

Update: Telephone service is currently down in Loyola and DML in some locations. This is due to repairs that were being made to the plumbing system in the Science building last week. At that time, two conduits were severed that facilitated traditional voice connectivity to Loyola and DML. Most phones in DML will be replaced and service re-established by the end of today as well as selected phones in LOY. All phone service is planned to be restored this week.

Due to a construction accident at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 17th, Dayton Memorial Library (along with the Pomponio Family Science Center, Loyola Hall, and the Coors Life Directions Center) is without telephone service.  We can neither make nor receive phone calls.  Phone service may take several days to be restored. 

We will check voicemails on a regular basis, but we encourage you to contact us via e-mail at  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Core Drilling on Friday, June 4th

June 3, 2010

As part of the ongoing construction project for the Tracy Listening Center on the library’s main floor, there will be core drilling through the concrete floor on Friday, June 4th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  This will be EXTREMELY noisy.  The best bet for a quiet spot in the library will be the 4th floor; alternatively, library patrons may wish to plan their library visits for after 2 p.m.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
