Recently on the 20-August-2008 (20-08-2008), I managed to visit and inspected the site. The new building is taking shape and the construction has reached the second (2nd) floor.
It is hoped that the building will be completed on-time to provide a modern and up-to-date library facilities to the students and surrounding community.
