Riverpoint Library moving to new Academic Center

SPOKANE — More than 10,000 books will be moved over seven days on the Riverpoint campus as the library is relocated and expanded.

The Cooperative Academic Learning Service, a joint library of Washington State University and Eastern Washington University, is moving to the second floor of the new five-story Academic Center at the heart of campus. The library will also be renamed, becoming the Riverpoint Campus Library.

The library will be closed for moving from Monday, July 24, through Sunday, July 30.

It will re-open 8 a.m. Monday, July 31. All items should be available at this time, including those requested from other locations; however, courier deliveries may take a few days to catch up.

Students, faculty, staff, and community users need to plan ahead for the closure and make arrangements as soon as possible. All library users will still be able to access electronic resources through the Internet. During the closure, EWU students can check out books from JFK Library on the Cheney campus. WSU Spokane students may travel to Pullman or other locations for access to physical items.

The new library will occupy 14,660 square feet and hold almost 6,000 linear feet of shelves. Wireless network access, six more computers, four group study spaces and a 24-seat classroom are all new additions to the library, along with several spectacular views of Spokane.

In 2008, thousands of additional books will fill the shelves of the library when the WSU Intercollegiate College of Nursing moves to the Riverpoint Campus with their library holdings.
