2021 V. E. Petrucci Library Renovations
Thanks to donor support received during our Fall 2020 Crowdfunding Campaign, we were able to kick-off a V. E. Petrucci Library renovation project in 2021. The project was completed in April 2021 with additional support from VERC. Library patrons, including students, will now have additional study space with improved electrical and internet access.
