The UAA/APU Consortium Library is scheduled to experience some renovations Fall of 2016. KRUA sat down with project managers John Hanson and Corey Fischer to find out more about the project and the estimated implications for students.

The project will give the library a new door, on the north side of the building. What is now an exit will be reconfigured, and be made into a full entrance with an Arctic entry. The project managers said there will some minor short term adjustments to library parking while the project is going on. They also said the library parking lot will be slightly rearranged to better accommodate handicap parking.

One of the project’s main goals is to give students the ability to stay inside longer and have a more direct route to the north end of campus; the ConocoPhillips Integrated Science, Administrative/Humanities  and Fine Arts Buildings.

The project has been appropriated $718,900 from FY 14 capital appropriations. The project managers assure the project costs will in no way affect student tuition.
