If you are planning to attend the Finding Your Ancestors Workshop this weekend, please be aware that the building steam plant will be shut down for maintenance from Friday night through Monday morning. This means that temperatures in the building may vary wildly, with an increased likelihood that it will be very cold in most of the building and that there will be no hot water in the bathrooms. Considering that it has been very cold in the building this week even without the steam plant being shut down, I would heartily suggest that anyone planning on being in the Library and Archives Building bring at least a sweater or light jacket with them; better yet, dress in layers so that you can adjust your own personal temperature to your own comfort level.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but sometimes these things are beyond our control. If you want to know more about the workshop, a brochure (PDF) is available online or you can send an e-mail to Kimberly.Hayes@ncdcr.gov.
