The program called for a variety of settings for research and study, classrooms and seminar rooms, multimedia workstations and labs, and a desire to breathe new life into the existing to make them congruent with the architectural fabric of the historic campus. The result is an academic library that is a centerpiece of the campus, and a showpiece for the university and surrounding community. It is the center for learning and culture in the university.
The generosity of Charles C. Myers and his wife, Romona Myers, enabled the architect to combine, rejuvenate and transform the existing disunited libraries into the expanded and unified Charles C. Myers Library. The project included two phases.
