(Nov. 23, 2009)--UTSA students, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate the completion of the first phase of the John Peace Library renovation at a special event from noon to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 1 at the Sombrilla Plaza mezzanine, outside the second-floor entrance to the library on the Main Campus. In case of rain, the celebration will be moved inside to the JPL second-floor entryway.

There will be hot beverages and a dessert buffet, live music, a magnetic poetry contest, and plenty of giveaways.

The renovation of the John Peace Library -- ongoing through 2011 -- represents a new vision for the library as the intellectual heart of an emerging premier public research university. When complete, the long-overdue makeover will bring the 1976 building into the 21st century with new services, resources and technology to support learning.

Phase One of the project included the creation of an information commons complete with 125 computer stations, a laptop lounge, new furniture and improved lighting throughout the building's second floor.
