The furnishing will be done in stages. Here's what the schedule looks like:

In early February, some bookshelves will be moved on the ground floor to make room for the new furniture. This primarily means that the shelves will be dark for a period because the lights must be dismantled first. However, the books will be available during the move, except for brief exceptions.

In the mid to late February, most new furniture will be placed in their respective places. It will not affect visitors in any significant way, but it can get a bit messy when the furniture is placed.

New lighting and ventilation units will also be installed in the ceiling to improve the study environment. The installation will probably cause some noise, but will be located in the early mornings whenever possible.

In late March or April, the last of the furniture will be placed.
