Mercyhurst University to upgrade library

Local News

An upgrade to Mercyhurst University’s library is getting some help as the school secured a $250,000 grant.

Mercyhurst plans to invest $800,000 into renovating the ground floor of the library in hopes of providing an overall experience upgrade for students.

The renovation also includes the building of the Ridge Reading Room and Gallery. The extensive collection of documents span the political lives of Tom and Michelle Ridge.

Mercyhurst is hoping to raise the additional $500,000 in the next few months and begin construction this summer.
