Volunteers needed at Main Library

While the UI Main Library resumed business Wednesday, library staff members are also trying to return evacuated materials to their appropriate places in the lower-level storage space. Returning the materials will be a much slower process than taking them out to make sure that items are retreivable. So the library is seeking a few volunteers to help with this effort over the next week. Only 30-40 people are needed at a time.

Materials will be moved only during the Main Library’s modified summer schedule:

Wednesday, July 9 (today) until 9 p.m.
Thursday, July 10 - 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.
Friday, July 11 - 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Saturday, July 12 - 12 until 6 p.m.
Sunday, July 13 - 12 until 6 p.m.

Volunteers should call the Infomation Desk at 319-335-5299 to sign-up for a shift.
