Home Stretch... After five years in the planning, Van Pelt-Dietrich has begun the refurbishment that will change the Libraries' interior from the barnlike atmosphere shown in the "fish-eye" photo above, to a warmer one as in the two watercolors of architects Bower Lewis Thrower, above and left. This summer, to make room for work starting in the Lippincott area, student aides Nancy Reiley and Brian Bodner (top) helped move Periodicals to its temporary quarters on the first floor West, in Dietrich Wing.
