King’s UC celebrates reopening of renovated library, new Elizabeth Russell Achievement Centre

King’s University College celebrated the completion of over $1M in renovations at the G Emmett Cardinal Carter Library, funded by a $1M donation from the estate of former chief librarian Elizabeth Russell. The funds were used to install a new front desk, remove accessibility barriers, and install sound-proof study pods in the library. A newly named Elizabeth Russell Achievement Centre, named in the donor’s honour, offers study stations; reading chairs; computer workstations; and a new meeting room for students, staff, and faculty. “Ms. Russell has demonstrated, through this generous gift from her estate, her lifelong belief in being a responsible guardian of education,” said King’s UC President David Malloy. “Little did she know the future needs of our students and the technological supports that would be necessary to further their education and help them flourish.” King’s UC| London Free Press Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
