Renovations Underway on University of Evansville’s Bower-Suhrheinrich Library



Construction has begun on renovations to the Bower-Suhrheinrich Library at the University of Evansville. The University’s fundraising campaign for the library’s makeover was exceeded with a final total of $3,200,000.

The goal of the library renovation is to blend computer technology services and classical library reference and research and create a hub for students to gather, collaborate and utilize multiple technologies. The library’s interior will be transformed into a bright, open space for group study sessions and collaborative projects. There will also be spaces set aside for individual study and creative work. The building’s new features will include a large wall of windows overlooking Ridgway University Center’s East Terrace Lawn, a popular outdoor gathering place for students.

ARC Construction is the contractor for the project. Much of the major renovation work on the library is expected to be complete by October.
