With the announcement of a $50.8 Million renovation to begin in March, 2014 to the VCU Cabell Library, students and university faculty will be thrilled to learn that included in this budget is a squirt of WD-40 to the University Library hole-puncher, located just inside the front door across from the checkout counter.

“VCU’s new library will have the most prominent spot on campus of any library building in Virginia, and more students will use it each day than any other library in the Commonwealth,” said a University spokesman, “and the money we have allocated to quiet the squeaky 3-hole punch in the most prominent spot in the lobby will be a most welcome addition as well.”
VCU’s new library will give substance to the concept of a “collegiate community” on the Monroe Park Campus by creating innovative learning spaces where academic studies and research are supported and encouraged, and will not be interrupted by the noise of students using the single hole-puncher in the lobby.
According to the VCU website, When you make a gift to support the new library building, you are “investing in the success of every single student at Virginia Commonwealth University, including those especially who need to 3-hole punch the work they have completed while inside our library space.”
Also according to the web site, a private fundraising campaign for the new library is currently underway, and there are funding opportunities to name spaces, make a general gifts, or contribute to an endowment fund to support future generations of VCU students.
New From Doswell would like to kick off this campaign for writing a check to cover the cost of the WD-40 used for the support and maintenance of the single 3-hole punch in the lobby.
