Elevator Noise

Sometimes students ask about the noise made by elevators in the libray building. Recently, one student wrote:

Why is it that the elevators make noise when they arrive at the floors, isn’t a library supposed to be quiet? Can this be fixed?

We can’t make the elevators any quieter. The “ding” you hear is actually at the lowest possible volume, and it allows people with visual impairments to use the elevators.
