They call it the Tioga Library Building, I guess because it is connected to the historic – but still not renovated – Tioga Building (1890).
It is across the street from the Swiss Tavern and the skybridge that connects it to the University of Washington Tacoma’s existing library crosses over the Prairie Line. The official opening is Oct. 3. Fall quarter begins Sept. 24 and it looks like finishing touches and the final move in will be completed by then. It cost $24 million.
One benefit of completion is the fencing that prevented use of the Prairie Line has been removed.
Here are some crappy smartphone pictures (blame me, not the phone) of the newest addition to the UWT (but, since it is partly used as a library, maybe it should be the newest edition).
