FVCC Breaks Ground on New Library & Learning Commons Monday

FVCC invites the community to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Library & Learning Commons on Monday, May 21 at 4:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided.

As an addition to the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing & Health Science, the 12,000-square-foot Library & Learning Commons is slated to open in January, 2019. The facility will include a library with leading-edge technologies, collaborative spaces for small group projects, a study area for the social learner, quiet study areas, multi-media services, a Maker lab and a Virtual Reality lab.

Construction of the $3-million Library & Learning Commons is made by possible by a lead gift of $2.5 million from the Broussard Family, along with other generous gifts from community members.

The Library & Learning Commons represents Phase I of the FVCC ONE Campaign, a privately funded philanthropic effort to better serve students and the community. Phase II of the ONE Campaign involves construction of a 50,000-square-foot College Center, which will include a large performance and lecture hall, a multi-purpose activity center with a track, an outdoor amphitheater, and a reception/exhibition hall. The performance and lecture hall will serve as the home of the Glacier Symphony. To date, more than $9 million has been raised for the construction of the College Center, with an additional $6 million needed to complete the project.
