A multi-million dollar renovation to the library at the State University of New York at New Paltz is complete.
A celebration and ribbon-cutting Thursday at SUNY New Paltz’s Sojourner Truth Library marked the completion of a $14.3 million project to upgrade the facility. SUNY New Paltz President Donald Christian says the renovation of the library’s main floor generated about 100 construction jobs. The new main floor is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and expanded learning and collaboration spaces, as well as aesthetic improvements that open the room to natural light and enhance its views of the nearby Shawangunk Ridge. Assemblyman Kevin Cahill, a SUNY New Paltz alumnus, was on hand and spoke about the library’s importance.
