The roofing issues are identified as regular maintenance item for the Universitys roofing crew. Current replacement scope includes several low slope roofs, a cement asbestos shingle roof located above the circulation desk, and dormer roofs many of which have recently received new windows or will receive new windows as part of this project. Roof-mounted duct work has been a source of ongoing leaks inside the building. The Main Library is a prominent building with high student use.
