Among the highlights: a redesigned main floor of Wexler Library, Hunter College’s main library on 68th Street, re-opens in late Spring 2013. The renovation is part of the Hunter College’s $45 million campaign to modernize its campus facilities. Other Hunter College libraries discussed are the Zabar Art Library, which was created in 2008 with a gift from Judith and Stanley Zabar to the Department of Art. The Brookdale Health Professions Library on 25th Street supports the needs of the campus’s nursing and other health programs. The newest branch, the Schools of Social Work and Public Health Library, on East 119th Street, serves both the Silberman School of Social Work and the CUNY School of Public Health. The new health campus was built with the help of $40 million of the proceeds from the sale of the building for the School of Social Work on East 79th, the largest gift ever to the University.
