Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will see if it is possible to add an automatic opener to one of the doors in the Reading Pavilion. In the meantime, please ask one of our staff members to help you whenever you come into the library.
UPDATE: On further investigation we found that there IS an automatic door opener on the west door into the Reading Pavilion, the one closest to the bottom of the stairs but not the one more directly on the route from the elevator.
