Library Fire Door Remains Out of Order

Connor Hay, Staff Writer

Students who have been through the library since the beginning of the semester may have noticed something different. The fire door that connects the West side of the library to the East side is closed.

“The fire door is down because the motor is broken. If the fire door is malfunctioning, it has to stay in the “down” position in order to be up to fire code,” Library Marketing and Communications Coordinator Anna Karras said.

The reason that a new part has not been ordered is because there are none to order. It has been out of manufacturing for some time and is hard to find. The other option is to replace the entire fire door. 

Despite the fire door being closed, the library is still able to conduct business as usual, with students having to go through Starbucks to get into the other side of the library.
