Completion of new VSU library is near

October 7, 2003

Valdosta - A new multi-million dollar library is almost complete at Valdosta State University.

The 14 million dollar, 95,000 square foot facility will feature a 24 hour Internet cafe, 150 seat auditorium, and several computer labs. Construction has taken almost two years, and the building will officially open during spring semester.

"With our student enrollment increasing every semester, we had outgrown our space," said George Gaumond, Librarian. "This will allow more room for students when they need to come in and work on their projects and papers."

Even though the facility will not be finished for a few months, the university held a ribbon cutting Tuesday because the Georgia Board of Regents is on campus.
