The Murray Library is going through a renovation to become the new Learning Commons.  This renovation will include relocating the library staff to new offices and the circulation area and Cafe Diem to new locations within the building.  Two group study rooms and an informal study area are being developed.  This project also relocates the Learning & Writing centers as well as Disability Services from Hoffman to the Library.


As part of the project we are upgrading the HVAC system with new high efficiency equipment and new electrical components.
