At 6 pm this evening, Barnard College held a event doubly honoring the end of its 125th academic year and revealing the design plans for the new library, to be called the Teaching and Learning Center. Major construction is to begin Winter 2015 and some of Lehman’s offices and books are already starting their move over the summer into a “swing space” to be housed in LeFrak Gym.

The new center is set to offer a wide array of new amenities, like another cafe (besides Liz’s) and a connection to Altschul Hall that will provide for more laboratory space. For more information, refer to the TLC’s own site within Barnard to see its construction timeline, architectural setup, and more.
