2015 Renovation

The $6.8 million Kreitzberg Library renovation was the first completed project under the Forging the Future campaign. At a September 1st, 2015 ribbon cutting event, the Norwich community was introduced to its newly transformed Library and its many major enhancements, including new workstations, group-study and collaborative-learning areas, new technology-enabled classrooms and a café.

Additional improvements include two new conference rooms, and a 77% increase in the number of seats, from 249 to 440. The renovated Library also boasts a 10-fold increase in data speeds and capacity and state of the art collaborative tools, thanks in part to a $125,000 grant from the George I. Alden Trust given to support technology upgrades.

Demonstrating Norwich’s commitment to sustainability, the vast majority of installed lighting use LED bulbs, subsidized by Efficiency Vermont, with an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90%. In addition, air handling units were upgraded, low volatile organic compounds (VOC) paint was used, and virtually all construction debris was recycled.

The renovation process was chronicled in the Renovation News and an Overview and FAQ were provided for the University community.
