After years of anticipation and planning, the architectural plans for the new 39,000-sq. ft. St. John the Evangelist library are now complete.
On October 7, 2001, the College broke ground on this project, and this past February, construction crews began clearing the trees and brush to begin work on the structure.
“Thanks to the work of the architect, O’Brien & Keane, the College’s library planning team, and the Board of Directors, the completion date of August 2003 is right on schedule,” said John Ciskanik, VP for Development, Planning, and College Relations. “In addition to the blueprints, the architects also sent us a beautiful water color of the planned library. Now that we can ‘see’ the library, the whole College community is even more excited than before.”
The construction of the library is made possible through the funds generated by Christendom’s first-ever capital campain, The Campaign for Christendom: Advancing Catholic Higher Education. The College anticipates the cost of the entire library project to be approximately $6 million.
