Concordia Theological Seminary expands Walther Library

The following statement was issued Monday by the Concordia Theological Seminary:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTS)—Concordia Theological Seminary, 6600 N. Clinton Street, Fort Wayne, Indiana, is pleased to announce the initiation of the final phase of construction for the Walther Library Expansion. The project, begun in 2009, will complete the addition of 45,000 square feet of space that includes room for the library’s collection of over 175,000 volumes, classrooms, small study rooms and renovation of the original Walther Library building.

The Hagerman Group of Fort Wayne was the contractor for the previous expansion phases and will be the seminary’s partner in this final phase, as well. “Concordia Theological Seminary is thrilled at the opportunity to work once again with The Hagerman Group as we complete our library expansion. This project will enhance the beauty and functionality of our already outstanding campus. The seminary is a ‘hidden gem’ in Fort Wayne. We hope that more people from the community will visit the campus at 6600 North Clinton Street and enjoy both the remarkable architecture and welcoming community that is CTS,” commented CTS President Dr. Lawrence R. Rast Jr.

The seminary community also wishes to thank our faithful donors who made this ambitious project a success through their selfless giving and prayerful support. “We are particularly thankful for Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Kroemer and their generous gift that made the funds available for the completion of the expansion,” said the Rev. Albert Wingfield, CTS vice president of Business Affairs.
