No Heat, No Hot Water in Bierce

04/03/2014

What is happening?

  • There is a leak in an underground heating pipe outside of the building. It needs to be dug up and repaired. 
  • In the meantime, to maintain a warm environment, there are temporary heaters throughout the library.  These heaters may be noisy.
  • Since this repair will also affect our hot water supply, there is a special hand soap in the restrooms that kills germs without hot water.
  • Lights are being changed to a more energy-efficient and reading-friendly wattage in Bierce as part of a campus wide program to reduce energy costs.

 

What is that noise?

To maintain a warm environment, there are temporary heaters throughout the library.  These heaters may be noisy.

 

How long will it take?

The length of time needed for the repair will be known once the extent of the damage is assessed.

We have been told it may take several weeks.

 

Who should I talk to if I have a complaint?

If you have a complaint please fill out a complaint form in person at one of the service desks or online at http://www.uakron.edu/libraries/about/complaint.pdf

 

Thanks for your patience as we make these necessary updates to the building.
