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.

“When we started the bond project, we considered the library to be in better shape than most of the other buildings, with regards to physical appearance,” Sparks said. “We had talked about turning it into an advanced learning library institution, but we had to take care of first things first.”

Thanks to a $250,000 gift from the Maria Hogue estate, however, officials can now turn their attention toward upgrading the library.
