Renovation for SUNO's Katrina-Destroyed Library
Nearly seven years after Hurricane Katrina's wind and water wrecked the library at Southern University at New Orleans, restoration of the three-story structure is to begin.
The library has been operating out of temporary quarters in the Multipurpose Building.
The Times-Picayune reports that a ceremony in front of the library building will launch the $4.3 million project.
SUNO spokesman David Grubb said the architecture firm for the restoration is Jerry Campbell & Associates of Baton Rouge. Work is expected to be complete by next summer.
