A Chilly Winter Break at WIC


With finals upon us and winter break quickly approaching, we wanted to inform our patrons that we’ll be having some work done at WIC over winter break. From December 27th through 30th, the library duct systems will be cleaned, which means that WIC will be chilly, noisy, and possibly overtaken by workers in certain booths and rooms. Even though WIC will be open (but not staffed) those days from 8:30am to 5pm, we’ve taken all of the bookings for the booths, group study rooms, and the WIC Seminar Room offline in case our workers need them. Anyone using WIC is more that welcome to sit in a booth or room, but please know that if the workers need access to any areas, they may ask you to move.

Please feel free to get in touch with us at wic1@pobox.upenn.edu with any questions. We wish everyone a happy holiday and restful winter break!

Our video recording rooms are getting major updates this month, so you may hear some extra noise in the Commons. We apologize for the interruption! We’re pretty sure the new rooms, with XXL high definition screens and new-and-improved cameras and recording technology will be worth it. If you need help finding a quieter space to study during the construction, one of the folks at the WIC desk can get you set up.
