Yale’s Sterling Memorial Library is getting a $20 million makeover

“Yale University’s cathedral of learning is getting a much-needed touch up. Sterling Memorial Library, the tallest building in the city when it opened in 1931, is in the midst of a complete restoration of its nave — the church-like expanse that awes visitors with its high archways, intricate stained glass and eye-catching stone work. When the project is completed a year from now, officials say, it will return the library to its former splendor while updating its functionality for today’s students and scholars.” (via New Haven Register)
