Wonderlust Class: MSU Architecture Students: At Work in the Real World

3:00 pm–5:00 pm, Friday, October 6th
Museum of the Rockies

In fall 2015, the Belgrade Community Library was named the “Best Small Library in America.” The prestigious annual award, cosponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, reflects the Belgrade Library's extraordinary success in serving the people of Belgrade and the surrounding area.

Dr. Tom McNab and students from the MSU Community Design Center at the MSU School of Architecture are collaborating with Belgrade Library staff and Belgrade citizens to envision, research and design a Belgrade Library building to meet growing demand for library services. This project is but one example of the Center's impressive contributions to nonprofit organizations and agencies in Montana and beyond. Other recent projects include collaborative design work with Yellowstone National Park and the Alex Lowe Foundation's Khumba Climbing School in Nepal.
