King’s receives $1M from estate of former Chief Librarian

November 26, 2020
King’s University College has received a $1M gift from the estate of Elizabeth Russell, the former Chief Librarian at King’s who retired in 1993. The funds will be used to renovate King’s G Emmett Cardinal Carter Library, with a focus on improving accessibility and student study spaces and enhancing technology. The library’s first floor will be named the “Elizabeth Russell Achievement Centre” to honour this support. “Through her work, Elizabeth brought new, modern technologies and library spaces to the King’s community,” said Adrienne Co-Dyre, Director of Libraries. “This gift continues that effort by supporting the needs of a current and evolving community and will allow King’s to offer the infrastructure and resources for tomorrow’s students and researchers.” King’s (1) | King’s (2) (ON)
