Inside the Reading Room is quiet, but we acknowledge that outside the Reading Room has been particularly noisy lately and will be getting worse. Scaffolding is going up around our building, street work on Mass. Ave. and Belvidere St. has brought jackhammers, and workers are preparing to take down the building across the street.
But have no fear. The reference desk always has a bowl of ear plugs available for the taking, and we're making sure to stay well-stocked. We even have a thematic playlist. What else would you suggest?
