CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - According to some students at Laramie County Community college...the Ludden Library is currently too crowded. That will change.

The LCCC board of trustees met tonight and gave approval to go forward with the level two design for the Ludden Library and learning commons renovation project.

This plan for renovating and adding involves higher ceilings, adding about fifty percent more computers, creating spaces where teachers can interact with students, and code updates.

The library staff has been involved in these plans which include incorporating materials that are more fun to promote creativity, study rooms which are lighter and more open, and a new facade for the north end.

Many working on this project and at Laramie County Community College agree this renovation is key.

Rick Johnson, Vice President of Administration and Finance, says, "It's been quite awhile since we've done an upgrade of our library. Students find the library a very valuable space for quiet study, for group work, not to mention the resources and the materials. We've identified the library as an area we need to reinvest in."
