Work to begin on rare books addition to library at St. Bonaventure

Construction will begin in early April on the new Paul and Irene Bogoni Rare Books Library, an addition to St. Bonaventure University’s Friedsam Memorial Library.

Additional gifts for the addition were received from Leslie C. Quick III and the estate of John R. McGinley Sr., allowing university officials to finalize construction plans. The construction schedule includes a planned hiatus during final exam week in May to minimize noise, said Brenda Snow, vice president for business and finance.
