Redesign of Lethbridge College’s Buchanan Library

Lethbridge College’s Buchanan Library is undergoing a significant redesign with help from funds donated over the years to increase our presence as a hub for student, staff, and faculty learning. The redesign will triple the number of student breakout rooms, add a virtual reality lab, and increase the diversity of seating options from students. We are also focusing on increasing student access to technology based on increasing demand.

The library will also feature an art gallery display, offices for the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Innovation, and a triage service model focused on student accessibility. This opportunity has also allowed for us to consult Lethbridge College’s indigenous elders to indigenize the physical space allowing for more inclusivity and honouring the Blackfoot heritage of the land on which the college resides.

The redesigned space will be open for students for the beginning of the 2019-20 academic year.
