Library Renovations: Alkek 2020 Vision

AUGUST 15 – 2019 

The Alkek 2020 Vision is the plan for transforming the Albert B. Alkek Library into a place where the Texas State University community can do research, study, collaborate and also explore, create, discover and innovate. The $14.3 million renovation, which is expected to be complete by early 2020, will include major modifications to the library, applying the learning commons model of library design where technology and information resources come together to facilitate research, innovation and instruction. Visit our first floor display and take a look back at how far the library has come and the exciting new features being added through this project that is expected to begin later this fall. And check out our centrally located second floor display case for continuously updated video and images of the transformation.
