Renovation of Booth Library on Schedule

Booth Library is undergoing an $18 million renovation and expansion that is
scheduled for completion in late 2001. Shown here on the top is the new
south facade that will allow patrons easy access to the building from class-
room and residence buildings near Garfield Street. On the bottom is a prelimi-
nary sketch of the new south entrance foyer with its vaulted ceiling and exhibit
spaces modeled after the 1950 north entrance to Booth.

Booth Library is the recipient of a “Bring in an purchase books and materials in specific disci-
