Library Renovation

CA students and faculty returned to campus this fall to find the J. Josephine Tucker Library redesigned. Now home to the Academic Support Center and a new multipurpose space for group collaboration or classroom use, the library has separate areas for quiet study and teamwork. The group spaces are equipped with whiteboards, projectors, and flexible seating, and new glass walls allow in plenty of natural light. Don Kingman, director of campus planning, design, and construction, says updates were due. “It’s been 30 years since the library was built,” he says. “Pedagogy and philosophy about how to use space have changed tremendously in that time.”
