Lam Square is a place for innovative and collaborative programs that will bring the library to the 21st century. “I always believed that Rush Rhees Library is the heart of my proud alma mater, from both a geographical and a functional perspective,” says Lam, whose gift allowed the construction of the space. “It is the focal point for our students to learn, explore, research, socialize, and showcase their achievements.” (University photo / J.
