HC trustees to eye upgrades to library

November 19, 2011

Howard College officials are looking at ways to use a $250,000 gift to help improve their library.

When trustees meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the Student Union Building's Tumbleweed Room, they will hear a report on the college library and officials hopes of modernizing the facility.

When administrators were drawing up plans for construction bond projects several years ago, the library was not high on the list of priorities, College President Cheryl Sparks admitted.
