The College of Idaho will soon be home to one of the most architecturally beautiful, state-of-the-art buildings in the Gem State — one that will serve as a new intellectual commons for C of I students, faculty and the entire campus community.
In February 2016 the C of I broke ground for Cruzen-Murray Library, which will serve as a new campus gateway at the intersection of 21st Street and Cleveland Boulevard. The building is a gift from the estate of the late Deborah Cruzen Murray and her husband, Glenn Richard Murray, Jr.
Cruzen-Murray Library will stand out on the College’s historic campus. Its light-infused, glass-and-steel design has a sleek, modern look and feel. The three-story, 60,000 square-foot facility will include traditional holdings of books and journals, as well as private and group study areas, a 24/7 study space, multimedia classrooms, a café, and public spaces for readings, lectures and exhibitions.
