Some areas in the Kentucky Library and Museum will be temporarily closed this summer due to renovations.

According to a WKU Libraries press release, the building will be installing and updating heating and cooling systems.

From May 30 to July 4, the newer sections of the library, such as the Research Library and some exhibit areas, will be closed. From July to the middle of October, the older sections, which include the Kentucky Room and the gift shop, will be closed.

In the release, Dean of WKU Libraries Mike Binder said the project was definitely overdue. He said there will be a noticeable difference in the quality of heat and air in the building once the renovations are complete.
