The small cluster rooms are finished and available for checkout. The construction is continuing in the north end of the upper level to create a cafeteria and vending space. As of now, the plan is to close the cafeteria in Boyne on Friday, February 2, 2018 and move vending machines and furniture to the remodeled space in the library. It should be open for use on Monday, February 5, 2018. There are ear plugs and headphones available at the service desk to help block out any construction noise. Thanks for your continued patience.
