The Revitalization of the Vernon and Doris Bishop Library

Bishop Library Atrium after it was revitalized in the summer of 2016

The Vernon and Doris Bishop Library was revitalized during the summer of 2016 into a center of technology, collaboration, and academic engagement through a $1.5 million gift from the Bishop Foundation, and family members Kathy, Thomas, and Trudie Bishop.

The College has developed a 21st century library space that is uniquely LVC and a destination that is the envy of our peers in higher education. Students are collaborating with access to the latest technology for interdisciplinary problem solving.

There was never a question that Kathy, Thomas, and Trudie Bishop were focused on the future of the College and trying to anticipate the needs of a residential learning community. Their extraordinary commitment to this project made it possible for this amazing renovation to occur.
