Natural Resources Library Renovation

Renovation rendering: group and private study areas

Renovations are in progress at the Natural Resources Library! The transformed library will open in 2021–22.

Designed to encourage interaction as well as individual study, the new library will expand into the lobby, removing barriers and adding a variety of study and lounge spaces, including group study rooms. A new library service “core” will house traditional functions, including circulation and technology lending, a smaller print collection, staff space, and the Ask Us desk. 

A new coffee shop will be added, providing food and beverage choices in an underserved area of the campus. A palette of colors and materials, inspired by nature, includes soft greens and light stained wood, reflecting the natural sciences theme. Watson Tate Savory is the architectural firm for this project.

We’ve moved! Where can you find us?

While the library space in Jordan Hall is under renovation, NC State faculty, staff, and students can borrow technology and pick up requested items from a temporary space in Biltmore Hall, Room 3003 during our open hours.

Biltmore 3003 is on the third floor, on the south (Western Blvd.) side of the building, around the corner from the elevator.
