Lane Library, built in the 1960s, underwent a total renovation during the 2005-06 academic year. The renovated library reopened for service on June 5, 2006. Renovation improvements, both functional and aesthetic, include new furniture throughout the building and the addition of a foyer with comfortable, upholstered seating; new, brighter lighting on both floors; smooth plasterboard walls in place of exposed cinder block; energy-efficient windows; group study rooms and more individual study carrels; the relocation of Media Services to the first floor and of bound periodical volumes to the second floor; and the addition of new computers.
The Zach S. Henderson Library on the Statesboro campus opened in 1975 after outgrowing the Rosenwald building. A $22.75 million expansion/renovation project began in summer 2004 and was completed in August 2008. This expansion added 101,000-square feet to the original building and included the first Automated Storage and Retrieval System in any library in the southeast. The total square footage of the Henderson library is 235,000.
