The remodeled UP library reopened after a $12.5 million remodel.
The Clark Library on the University of Portland campus opened at the start of the school year after a $12.5 million renovation. Work began in May 2012 and included technology and space upgrades.
The renovation includes a glass-walled entrance facing the academic quad, spacious rooms lit with natural light, compact book shelving and updated study labs.
The library has added a Heritage version of the Saint John’s Bible, one of only 45 institutions to do so. The handwritten and illuminated Bible is displayed prominently in the new building, attesting to the library’s role as a spiritual as well as intellectual hub of the campus.
