Dear Members of the AIT Community:
I write to inform the AIT Community of the progress of the AIT Library Modernization Project.
Kindly see the attached overall modernization plan of the library and the progress as of 1 May 2015 (Attachment 1).
Originally only Tasks A, B and C were considered within the estimated budget of 54 million Baht. However, because of the tremendously generous support from stakeholders and friends, the Library Modernization Task Force felt very much obliged to deliver the AIT library in its top form and quality. Thus, the "interior design" has been added in order to create a fresh atmosphere of intellectual excitement. The Library will impress upon its users and guests the vibrant international and culturally diverse learning environment of AIT.
Upon my consultation, Mr. Yodyiam Teptaranon, the former President of Association of Siam Architect (ASA), has kindly offered to help on the interior design aspect. The sketches of the interior design have been received as in Attachment 2, which will cost an additional budget of around 12 million Baht (TASK D in Attachment 1)
