Hamilton Library Closed March 28th

Hamilton Library will not have electricity this Friday (March 28) because its
power line will be down to enable repairs to a leaking transformer at
Mid-Pacific Institute. Therefore, Hamilton Library will be closed all day on
Friday. It was scheduled to be open from 8 am - 5 pm, but without
electricity, the Library cannot provide safe and secure facilities for users
and staff.

There is a possibility that the power outage will also disable the Library's
server, which would also shut down the Library web access to holdings and
electronic resources. Campus Services, Mid-Pacific Institute, and the Library
apologize for this inconvenience.
