LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Changes are coming to UWL's Murphy Library.
The library is shifting its focus to accommodate the needs of the modern student by providing collaborative spaces for students to work together as well as new furniture to improve student productivity.
Officals say campus libraries have changed from a quite study area to an active student learning center.
The Library is a busy area so officials hope the changes will increase student success.
"Last year, we had over 600,00...630,00 students come in to the building so we do need to keep up and we need to make it as welcoming and comfortable and inducing to work as possible," says Library Director Catherine Lavallee-Welch.
The library is also starting a fundraiser to pay for larger improvements to the building.
