In response to some moth sightings, an organic moth treatment has been scheduled for the entire Getty Research Institute building starting Saturday, May 27, at 11:00 p.m. All carpeted areas, including reader carrels, will be treated.
The building will re-open on Sunday, May 28 (note that there will be intermittent noise associated with a follow-up vacuuming taking place throughout the building that day).
In preparation, please remove any items from the floor in your work area and place them on your desk, counter spaces, or shelves. These include boxes, paper, or any other materials that might obstruct access to the carpet. You do not need to worry about chairs, chair mats, or trash cans. Please also be certain you have removed any collection materials that might be on or near the floor.
If you have food items stored in your workspace, you should remove them prior to the treatment. If you are unable to do this, you may consider discarding these items when you return.
