FARGO – North Dakota State University will be renovating its main library for the next five months, a news release said Tuesday.

The $1.7 million project will address some deferred maintenance issues, merge the circulation area with inter-library loans and create a front entrance that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the release from university spokeswoman Sadie Rudolph said. The new entrance will extend 20 feet into the mall on the library's north side.

In the meantime, students and visitors can enter on the east side of building, the release said. Construction is set to end Nov. 1, and the library will offer regular services until then.

This is the first major update for the NDSU library since 1980, and Bridget Burke, dean of libraries, said in the release that the changes will help with traffic issues.

"It was time for us to look at how students use and move through our space," she said.
