A Printers' Marks pane will be removed from an east-facing center window in the Main Library's Reading Room on September 10 prior to the removal of the entire steel frame and glass window. It will be replaced with an extruded aluminum, thermally-insulated unit that will replicate the existing window details. Upon completion of the new window installation, the Printers' Marks pane will be re-installed in a mounting that is specifically designed to hold it in its original location within the window opening. The Printers' Marks pane will be kept in a secure location during the window replacement. Seven additional windows in the Reading Room will also be replaced in the same manner.
