The historic Carnegie building sits near the water here in Cold Spring Harbor. Constructed in 1905, it was initially lab space for the scientists who began a great tradition of science at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
More than 100 years later, that same building will be renovated to become the Genentech Center for the History of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.
Mila Pollock, Executive Director, CSHL Library and Archives said at the groundbreaking that "the Library plays an important role in the student’s learning process. One hundred years ago, scientists conducted research in this building.
"When this expansion is completed, tomorrow’s researchers will be able to rediscover those early days to help them in their research for future discoveries.”
In the meantime, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Library Archives resides in the similarly historical Osterhout.
