Evers’ budget proposes Cofrin Library demolition, rebuild – The Press

GREEN BAY – It’s hard to miss the David A. Cofrin Library, the heart of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay which towers over campus, but that could soon change.A plan working its way through Madison calls for the demolition of the eight-story building, and a new, innovative $96.3 million library to be built in its place.The project is part of Gov. Tony Evers’ 2021-23 proposed biennial budget.“The UW Campuses are the economic drivers of the state,” Evers said at UW-Green Bay Wednesday, March 7. “As we come out of the pandemic, we need to Build Back Better with a major investment in technology and higher education. Investing in both is critically important and will help us bounce back faster and better.”
