With extensive upgrades and additions under way, Liberty University’s campus is teeming with excitement for what the next few years hold. The five-year campus transformation plan will create new academic buildings, add parking and access roads, and provide new athletic facilities.
The most ambitious building venture is the new Jerry Falwell Library. With the foundation already poured, and structural steel being installed, the outer structure is scheduled to be complete by Christmas. This paves the way for interior work, which will take approximately one year to finish. This $50 million venture is the first building on campus to bear the name of Liberty’s founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., and is expected to be completed in late 2013.
“The Jerry Falwell Library is the culmination of many past dreams and prayers,” says Carl Merat, library dean. “The library is a center for building academic community and a platform to discover, create, and share knowledge.”
Through naming opportunities, general donations, and commemorative bricks, over $1.25 million has already been raised for this project. More than 1,100 bricks have been donated, and three sizes are still available for donation.
The Jerry Falwell Library is the perfect place to have a piece of your history memorialized. As we look to the future, this is your opportunity to play a role in the Liberty story — donate a brick today. Be a part of what God is doing on Liberty Mountain.
