    Did architectural team designing the proposed new expansion / addition to the Budimir Library take flood proofing measures into consideration with their new design for the Budimir Library? Has that even become a facilities management potential afterthought now?

      Thank You for your comments David. Engineers and Architects will certainly review and study this issue when formalizing the final design plans, as they will all issues which impact the project.

    I have books on hold at Riverside. Will they be held until that branch reopens?

    It would be useful to advise of the exact hours that FRED is available.
    Just saying “morning” or “afternoon” is not very helpful.

    This is especially confusing because the Riverside branch was supposed to open at 12pm yesterday.
