Building for the future Among those suffering casualties resulting from the reces- sion were higher educational institutions. But ACU managed to be the exception to the rule with at least one plan for growth: the Margaret and Herman Brown Library. Along with additional building space, faculty also was increased. Early in the fall it was announced that funds were available for a 32.5 million wing to be added to the library. Several foundations provided funds, including the Brown Foundation of Houston with a gift of 3500,000g the j.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, 31 million, and miscellaneous gifts totalling 31 million. The new wing would expand to the west of the existing building and add 25,000 square feet of library space. An atrium was planned to connect the wing to the main building. Kenneth Roach, director of libraries and instructional media, said the space would be used to increase the government-documents section of the library. The remaining space would be used to expand other sections, including special collections and university archives. The new facility would "allow an increase in library holdings and services to better serve the students and facul- ty," said Roach. The dream of the new wing became a reality at the Feb. 22 ground-breaking ceremony. Dr. joe Mabee, trustee for the Mabee Foundation, surprised President William-I. Teague by presenting the foundation's gift of 31 million during the ceremony. Roach said he had not expected to receive the check at the ceremony. He said ACU had matched the 31 million given by the Mabee Foundation, but he thought the check would come by mail or by courier. More than 100 people attended the ground breaking. Roach said a completion date for the wing had not been determined because a building date had not been set. Total construction time was approximated at 360 days. Construc- tion began in mid-May. As the university made plans for the expansion, new staff members were added to the library faculty. Michael Ayres was assigned to a cataloging position. He had been associated with the library since 1974 as a student worker and full-time staff member. Ayres received a master's degree in library science from North Texas State University in 1982. Lilah Gainey joined the staff in 1982. She worked at the reference desk and directly with faculty in acquisitions. KX FRONT ROW: Kenneth Roach, Callie Fay Milliken, Lilah Gainey, R. L. Roberts.

Children's literature was the theme of one display. T purpose of this exhibit was to introduce a new collection children's books given to the library by Wilma Marsh: assistant professor of English. - Tammy Dablof .4
