CANTON - Renovations to the Cole Reading Room at St. Lawrence University’s Herring-Cole have restored it to a quiet study space and enhanced the original woodwork in the historic building.

Thanks to generous gifts from Trustee Jay Ireland ’77 and Valerie Ireland ’77, the Cole Reading Room has been restored to its original beauty with refinished woodwork as well as new lighting, carpet and reading tables and chairs. Ireland is president and CEO of GE Africa.

Dan Seaman, chief facilities officer for St. Lawrence, said the room will be open to students once classes begin this fall.

“The Irelands wanted to see it restored back to a quiet study area,” Seaman said. “We removed a lot of casework that had been added over the years, and we moved some of the bookshelves back to their original location.”

Herring-Cole has been listed on the National Registry of Historic Places since 1974.

A dedication will take place this fall.
