Ground will be broken for a new $28.2 million, 74,198 square foot Learning Resource Center (LRC) and library on Suffolk County Community College’s Michael J. Grant Campus, Brentwood on Monday May 11, 2015 at 11 a.m.
Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay will be joined by students, faculty, administration, staff and a host of state and county officials to celebrate the beginning of construction of the newest building on the College’s Grant Campus.
The new building will become the new home to the current library that is now located in the College’s Sagtikos Building. The library was not originally intended to be part of the Sagtikos complex, but was temporarily placed there in 1993 until an independent building could be constructed. The existing 15,520 square foot library is approximately half the size recommended by SUNY.
The new LRC will house traditional library spaces and also include:
- A 95 seat lecture hall
- A writing center
- A reading center
- Computer labs
- Tutoring rooms
- Testing rooms
- An information commons
- A Board of Trustees room
- A teaching and learning center
- A photo/video studio
- Photo/video labs and offices
Construction is expected to take approximately 18 months.
