"A year ago if you walked through the building after the fire, you would have experienced varying degrees of destruction. Today, you’ll find varying degrees of progress."

Just over a year ago, Hale Library suffered water, fire, and smoke damage. As the latest K-State Libraries blog post reports, reconstruction is well underway in the building. According to the Hale recovery plan website, the first floor will be the first section of the building to reopen, doing so this fall.
