Torch, Winter 1987

Library Update T he Centennial Library - a tribute to the grace of God, and an example of His provision - was dedicated to His glory and to the use of our college family on Saturday, October 17, during the Homecoming festivities. Completion of the $4.35 million facility was the capstone of a year of centennial activities and was the major emphasis of the Centennial Campaign which also addressed general fund and endowment needs. Some friends of Cedarville have offered a challenge grant to help finish the funding of the Library. They will give the College $350,000 if other gifts and commit– ments for the Library total $4 million by January, 1988. Corporate matching gifts count toward meeting the challenge. With over $3.4 already committed to the project, friends of the college can have the joy of seeing the building paid for in full as they contribute to "The Fund for a Quality Finish." T he 67,000 square foot Centen– nial Library will allow collec– tion growth to 250,000 volumes. Computer links for interlibrary loans access over 2,000 libraries. The new facility in– cludes a Media Production Center, special collections and archives, a resource center for education students, a video studio and control room, and a state-of-the-art computerized language-learning lab. 12
