Renovation of SUNY Oneonta’s James M. Milne Library is officially complete, four months ahead of schedule. The $8 million renovation project has enhanced study and research areas in both number and quality. Bright, open spaces, modern seating and light fixtures, and pops of teal and yellow make the library a space in which students want to spend time. Nearly every seat and desk area now has direct access to an electrical outlet so students can easily plug in their phones and laptops. Expanded Wi-Fi access coverage reaches deep into the building. Colorful alcoves with comfortable seating, soundproofing panels and glass writing boards make this an ideal space for students to work efficiently.
