It’s official:

The complicated $80 million Williams College plan to attach a new library to Stetson Hall and tear down the existing library is on hold indefinitely.

When the project begins will depend on when the economy returns to stability, college officials said.

Those interesting in more information on the building project can attend Wednesday’s CC meeting, which will include a presentation by the Stetson-Sawyer committee. I think it very important that the student body look at these plans now – future generations of Ephs will have to live with our success or failure in getting the project right.
