The GRI Plaza entrance doors have reopened, Reception and Security are at the Plaza desk again, and the Reference Desk has moved back upstairs! Periodicals and newspapers are now available for browsing in the Plaza Reading Room.
Registered Readers with badges should continue using the Reader Entrance on L2, which will be open Monday through Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, the L2 doors will be closed so the Plaza entrance/exit must be used.
First time library users, Readers without badges, or Readers who forget their badge must enter the GRI at the Plaza Level and check in with Reception or Security. Temporary badges will only be available at the Plaza Reception/Security Desk.
