Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Monday marked the beginning of a new era on UTC's campus.  
The long-awaited new library officially opened providing a great new addition when classes resume next month.  
The 48-million dollar, four-story facility has seating for 2100 people, hundreds of desktop and laptop computers, and a media studio with music- and video-editing software.  
The new library has 40-percent more space than the old Lupton Library, which will be converted into classroom space.  It's located in the center of campus, at Vine and Douglas, and includes a Starbuck's.  The 4th floor consists of a reading room, which offers great views of downtown Chattanooga.  
Once classes are in session, the library will open most nights until 2:00 a.m.
