WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - UNCW is holding a groundbreaking ceremony for the William Madison Randall Library Renovation on Thursday, May 19.

The renovation will add 80,000 square feet of new building construction and a connecting bridge to expand the library.

The additional space will house special collections and archives: the Center for Southeast North Carolina Archives and History.

A centralized reading room is being added for researchers to use and digital labs and maker spaces are included in the project.

“The new library will also have expanded tech spaces like digital maker spaces, virtual and augmented reality labs and a data visualization lab,” stated the news release.

The full project is expected to be completed by April of 2024.
