Substantial renovations in Miller Library will remodel the entrance and the first floor and will restore the historic main-floor reading room over the next two years. The $8.7-million project approved by trustees in April will significantly expand study space for students and will bring together academic support including the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Farnham Writers’ Center, Information Technology Services, and the new humanities center. Some administrative offices will be moved to the ground floor. The project got underway in early May, when some of the collection was moved so construction could begin. Both phases of the two-part project will be completed by fall 2014.
