Whatever Happened to the Old Library

We get questions fairly regularly about the Old Central Library. What will happen to it? Well, according to the Des Moines Register, the building will become the "Norman E. Borlaug Hall of Laureates." TheWorld Food Prize organization has money coming in for restoration - a $5 million grant from Monsanto. So to those of you who worried that the Old Library would be torn down, never fear. The beautiful Minnesota-limestone building will once more be inhabited and put to good use.
