In connection with the 55th anniversary of the creation of Jefferson College by Jefferson County voters in 1963, the College will host a public grand opening for the renovated Library on Monday, April 2, from 3-5 p.m. on the Hillsboro campus.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Advance reservations are not necessary.
The event will include a short dedication ceremony at 3 p.m. followed by tours of the new facility, interactive demonstrations, historical and construction document displays, information regarding the Jefferson County 200th Bicentennial Celebration, music, refreshments, and giveaways.
The $5 million renovation, which began in late 2016, has been possible thanks to a $1.7 million appropriation by the Missouri legislature for capital projects and an ongoing $1.5 million campaign by the Jefferson College Foundation.
