Just a little over a year after breaking ground, Hannibal-LaGrange University will hold a dedication ceremony for the Roland Library. The event will take place at 10:00 am on Friday, April 27th in front of the new library on the HLGU campus. The community is invited to attend the dedication ceremony, reception, and tour the new facility. Individuals may also choose to join students and staff in a human chain to move the first one hundred books.
In addition, volunteers are needed to help move the collection from one building to the other on May 12, 18, & 19 starting at 8:30 am.
The new 20,000 sq. ft. library is named in honor of Dr. E. Earl Roland. Dr. Roland is a 1941 graduate of Hannibal-LaGrange and a long-time supporter of the University. Amenities of the new handicapped-accessible library facility include a multimedia-equipped computer classroom, computer lab, private and group study rooms, audio and video editing stations, a coffee corner and fireplace lounge, children’s reading area, and added space for expanded print and audiovisual collections.
