Concerns about accessibility and ADA compliance, crowding, safety, and overall navigability of the aging facility are the motivating factors. We want the new Carrier Library to be universally accessible, easy to visit, environmentally responsible, and welcoming!
This is also a once-in-a-lifetime chance to update and reimagine Carrier Library for JMU’s future as a national university. The new building will include 24-hour student study space, beautiful reading rooms, outdoor terraces, consultation and group study rooms, and expanded facilities for library instruction, innovative educational technology, digital scholarship, distinctive collections, and more. The renovated building will also include space for a café and the Furious Flower Poetry Center!
