Library Construction Right on Schedule

Construction on the new library complex at UACCM is “right on schedule” according to Chancellor Nathan Crook. “Construction got off to a slow start due to problems related to ordering the steel structure, but the general contractor has pushed hard to catch up, so we are back on track,” Crook said.

Construction on the $3.9 million, 26,000-square-foot complex began in June of this year. When complete, it will feature approximately 15,000-square-feet of library space, seven general-use classrooms, and 10 faculty offices. The complex will include the new E. Allen Gordon Library to replace the current library on campus which was last renovated in April of 1994. Since then, UACCM has experienced a whopping 250 percent increase in enrollment. The new library will also include group study rooms, Wi-Fi connections, and a LOT more space and seating.

For all of you lucky enough to be students next semester, looks like you'll have a nice place to spread out and study.
