KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Construction has started at Avila University in Kansas City on library renovations and a new health & science complex.

The university held a ceremony Monday to begin renovation of the library into a Learning Commons. A second phase will create a Science & Health Complex in renovated space in O’Rielly Hall. The school also plans a 130-space parking lot.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/PdAaHD ) the projects are expected to be completed by August.

Avila officials say the school has met a challenge grant and will receive $1 million from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation. That means the college successfully raised the $7 million needed for the two projects. The parking lot is funded by a bond issue.
