President Thomas S. Monson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been invited to attend the official university naming and ribbon cutting event on Tuesday, July 1.
The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on the west side of the new library.
According to the office of UVU President William Sederburg, Monson, who more than 30 years ago attended the ground-breaking ceremonies for the Orem campus — at the time known as Utah Technical College — will offer a dedicatory prayer. Monson is scheduled to speak at a luncheon after the ribbon cutting.
According to Sederburg, as of yet, no one has put up the required $10 million donation to have the new library named after him or her. In an interview with UVU REVIEW, Sederburg said, “There’s still an opportunity for your family and friends and relatives to name it after you if they want to.”
Tours of the new library are available during the Library Open House on Monday, June 30.
