Linfield President Vivian A. Bull, members of the library staff and theatre and communication arts faculty will be on hand to officially mark the beginning of construction of the new facility. A brief program is planned, followed by refreshments. Renovation is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2003. The new library and theatre will be housed in a 73,000-square-foot building on Linfield's Keck Campus, more than doubling the size of the current Northup Library and the theatre facilities in Pioneer Hall.
The celebration is open to the public.
