WRIGHT LIBRARY CHALLENGE CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF AT LA ROCHE COLLEGE


9/12/2008

Pittsburgh, September 12, 2008 — The John J. Wright Library, on the La Roche College main campus in McCandless Township, has been serving the College and the North Hills community since its opening in 1967. But the time has come for a change. A funding initiative, the Wright Library Challenge, is currently under way to renovate the library’s physical space to fully integrate learning and technology in a state-of-the-art facility, and the College is seeking donors to assist in reaching a $250,000 goal.

Generous grant awards, from several Pittsburgh foundations, have set the stage for raising the necessary funds to support the Wright Library renovation project, including a challenge grant, which matches dollar-for-dollar gifts designated to this project. In order to obtain the foundation’s matching funds, the $250,000 must be raised by Dec. 31, 2008.

With the updates scheduled for the Wright Library, it will truly become a learning center for all who use it, according to Sister Candace Introcaso, CDP, Ph.D., president of La Roche College. The main level will feature pod study areas, a portable language laboratory, an information literacy and presentation room, and media screening facilities. In addition, wireless technology and software-enabling communication and instruction will be available to all library users – on the campus and in the community. The lower level will house La Roche’s top two academic programs: Graphic & Communication Design and Interior Design.

Anyone interested in learning more about the Wright Library Challenge or in donating to the campaign may go to www.laroche.edu/challenge or call Kathleen Corcoran at 412-536-1088.
