New elevator has arrived onsite!

Our new elevator for Gullixson Hall finally arrived today! Just a few more weeks to go until you can "get a lift" to the Luther Seminary Library. 

Library Stacks Elevator Now Out of Service

Work has begun on our stack elevator! While we're very happy to be having the updates made, it does mean that we are completely without elevator service for the next 5 weeks or so. Please call the circulation desk at 651-641-3447 to ask for assistance in getting books if this means you will not be able to get into the library.

New Extension Borrower Policy!

As of July 1, 2014 borrowing privileges at Luther Seminary Library are open to our extended community for the cost of $50 per year.  You may open an extension borrower account in person Monday through Friday, 8-5, paying with cash or check at the circulation desk.  To pay with Visa, MasterCard or Discover, use our online registration form.

Extension borrowers with existing accounts will need to pay to renew their accounts by July 1, 2015.  The $50 fee is waived for Luther Seminary alumni.

Please contact the library Circulation Desk with your questions, 651-641-3447 or libcirc@luthersem.edu.

Building walls

Last week marked the end of the demolition and start of building walls for the new elevator, followed quickly by rebuilding to put the building back in usable order. This next phase will be less noise and less debris, but you will occasionally notice shorter times of drilling and hammering.

Cutting out the shaft

This week has been all about continuing to make room for the elevator shaft. This first picture is of the hole cut out between the roof and the 3rd floor ceiling. You can see the ceiling tiles, with the short wall above supporting the wood sheets that are temporarily keeping the elements out. The picture below shows another view of this hole as well as the hole in the floor connecting down to the 2nd floor.
