Richard E. Bjork Library was originally constructed in the early 1970s and was last renovated in the 1990s. As part of the NJ State Bond Solicitation 2022, Stockton has been awarded $19.5m in funds restricted for capital facilities improvement use only, specifically to renovate the Library into a state-of-the-art Library Learning Commons.
This renovation will be a two-year process, during which the library will have a temporary presence in the C/D Atrium.
To read more about the budget, complete timeline, and planning, please see the Facilities website on Library Learning Commons Planning.
Beginning in May 2024, the Library services and staff will move to temporary spaces. The relocation will take place throughout the summer and the temporary spaces will be fully operational by the beginning of the Fall 2024 semester. More information and specific locations will be provided soon.
