William T. Young Library - University of KentuckyThe William T. Young Library opened on the University of Kentucky campus in April 1998. It is the third central library in the University's history, replacing the Margaret I. King Library which opened in 1931 and the Carnegie Library constructed in 1909. Michael McKinnell of Boston was the architect.
The building has over 350,000 square feet of space and cost $58 million. President Wethington's commitment to the project was critical as the facility was constructed with private funds by the UK Alumni Association. Bonds sold to finance part of the construction expenses were retired by the UK Athletics Department. William T. Young of Lexington was the leading contributor to the Library.
