Library open house
After a yearlong renovation, an open house is planned by staff members of Catawba College’s Corriher-Linn-Black Library from noon- 3 p.m. Jan. 17 for the college and local community.
The Salisbury architectural firm of Ramsey, Burgin and Smith Architects Inc. oversaw the library renovations, which capitalized on existing tall ceilings, large windows and spacious public spaces. An information commons was created, offering attractive seating and plenty of computers, along with a library instruction lab, a reading area and spaces for collaborative learning in small groups.
As a way to maximize the 1953 circa building’s limited square footage, the renovation also included high-density or compact shelving to house most of the library’s collections.
The staff and collections of the library moved out of the space during the Christmas holidays in 2006 and were relocated for a year to the second floor of Hoke Hall and four mobile units on campus behind Hoke Hall (to house library collections) during the renovation period.
The college plans a formal dedication of spaces in the library in mid-February.
