Jefferson Hall Library and Learning Center
Hall, completed in 2008, reflects the Academy's ongoing commitment to
academic excellence. The United States Military Academy Library, the
Center for Enhanced Performance and the Center for Teaching Excellence,
all providers of student-centered information services, are now
consolidated in one central location, directly along the path from the
barracks to Thayer Hall.
Modern in design and composition,
Jefferson Hall yet incorporates many of the characteristics of Central
Area architecture, such as entry arches, limestone window surrounds and
multi-paned windows. Special features include 8,000 amber-colored glass
blocks on the north exterior wall of the ground floor and terracotta
bricks on interior walls. New Hampshire granite, used on the exterior,
is also incorporated in the interior walls of the lobby and sixth floor.
The upholstered furniture was manufactured in North Carolina, and the
wooden tables and chairs in Wisconsin.
