UI Library Unveils Remodeled First Floor April 1
March 24, 2016
The University of Idaho Library will unveil its newly renovated first floor during a grand reopening ceremony on Friday, April 1, 2016.
The celebration will be held from 2-3 p.m. April 1 on the first floor of the library, located in the heart of UI’s Moscow campus. The program will begin at 2 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a reception. The public is welcome to attend.
The project began last summer and includes furniture customized for learning and studying, 24-hour access, new food and coffee options, new group study areas and expanded technological offerings. The total cost of the remodel was approximately $1.3 million and was funded with both public and private support.
“The students truly see this as their library and as a great place to learn and engage with technology and each other,” said UI Dean of Libraries Lynn Baird. “This renovation represents much more than an update from the old to the new; it represents a new era in library education.”
