SUNO Library receives $14 million makeover

The Leonard S. Washington Memorial Library at Southern University New Orleans (SUNO) will host an Open House Thursday, November 2, 2017 to celebrate and showcase its $14million restoration project. Tours are scheduled throughout the day at 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
