Davis Family Library
- If able, park in the designated spots on Old Chapel Road and enter the library through the front door.
- Access to the doors on Storrs Ave. is granted as needed:
Please note that the Main Level and the Lower Level have at-grade exits but the Upper Level and Mezzanines are accessed only by the elevators, which may not be used in case of fire. If you are a wheelchair user and you can’t exit the building during a fire alarm, wait inside one of the stairwells for rescue personnel. If possible, make note of the staircase number (1-4) and ask someone exiting the building to notify emergency responders of your location, or call 911 from a cell phone to alert rescuers of your location. The stairwells are designed as “safe zones” during a fire with doors that shut automatically and an independent air circulation system.
Elevator #2 in the northeast corner of the building is designed to operate on the emergency generator during a power failure.
Park in the designated spots next to McCardell Bicentennial Hall on Bicentennial Way. Upon entering the building, take the elevator to the second level. The front door of Armstrong Library is diagonally across the Great Hall from the elevators. There are elevators inside Armstrong Library, located in the southwest corner.
Both of the emergency exits on the first level are at-grade. On the second (entry) level, the at-grade exit is through the front door and to the right.
All the elevators in McCardell Bicentennial Hall are designed to operate on the emergency generator during a power failure.
Davison Library (Bread Loaf)
Park behind the Bread Loaf Inn and take the sidewalk past the Little Theatre to the Davison Library main entrance.
The Main Level and the Lower Level have at-grade exits but the Upper Level is accessed only by the stairs. Please note that there are no elevators in Davison Library.
