UCF to overhaul library, install 'robo-librarian'

Posted: Updated:
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

The last time the University of Central Florida overhauled its John C. Hitt Library, Ronald Reagan was president.  That 1984 project was designed to last 20 years.  Now, 28 years later, the school is about to sink more than $32 million dollars into the building to bring it into the 21st century.

Part of the overhaul is a four-story repository where hundreds of thousands of less popular books will be moved.  Once there, an automatic, robot-like system will retrieve them when someone wants to check them out.

The project is scheduled to start soon and will take about two years to complete.
