Cornette Library Maintenance and Renovations

To share upcoming and past projects that maintain and improve the physical building.

Project Overview

We are renovating the Gallery space with new self-healing wall coverings!  Tri-State is also involved in this project.  The renovation started Thursday, 2/13/2020 and was to be completed by Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the project end date was extended to mid-April.  The wall coverings and unfinished base boards were installed by March 3, 2020 in time for the Faculty Poster Session.  Finished base boards and chair rails were installed during the weeks of April 13, 2020 and April 20, 2020.
