After more than two years of planning, we have created a Master Facility Plan for the renovation and expansion of Cowles Library.
Phases I and II will renovate the existing building. Phase III will add a new wing on the East side of the library.
Here is a taste of what we are working towards:
- 24 Hour Study Area
- Enhanced classroom
- Enhanced service area
- Expanded Cowles Cafe
- Additional study, group, meeting areas
- Updated heating and air conditioning
- New furnishings
- New technology for retention and preservation of print collections
