Weatherwax Foundation Signs On to Albion College Library Campaign
Albion College's approach to teaching and learning has attracted attention from the Weatherwax Foundation of Jackson, Mich., which recently made a $250,000 gift in support of the renovation of the College's Stockwell Memorial Library. Reimagined as a 21st-century learning center, Stockwell will be transformed by expansive new digital collections, high-tech classrooms, powerful research technology, and spaces and services that foster personal, professional, and collaborative scholarship.
