Alumni and students unite to give Whitehaven library a facelift

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Alumni and students are working together to give the old Whitehaven Library a facelift.

Members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity pulled up the old tile and fixtures today to make way for a new outreach center. They describe their acquisition of the abandoned building as uplifting to the community.

Barry-Lewis Harris stated, "Put in a computer center for computer literacy. We'll also put in an educational center (so) that we can have lectures and sessions on education for financial literacy."

When the center is fully operational, the group plans to hold sex education classes, host voter registration drives, and offer youth etiquette training courses.
