University of Virginia: Alderman Library to Close in May 2020 and Reopen by Spring of 2023

From The Cavalier Daily:

John Unsworth, the University’s Dean of Libraries and an English professor, sent an email to the University community Wednesday afternoon regarding the continuation of the Alderman Library renovations. The email stated that Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) recently approved construction funding without alteration, allowing the University to move forward with the renovation project.

Alderman will be fully closed in May 2020 and is expected to reopen by spring of 2023. Unsworth added that library materials will be moved from Alderman to Clemons Library and Ivy Stacks starting in May 2019 as construction activity begins on a small scale. No materials are being removed from circulation.
