LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 23, 2014) — The University of Kentucky on Tuesday unveiled a new state-of-the-art meeting space in the William T. Young Library on campus. The Keeneland Association Room will be available for reservation by student organizations, faculty and staff groups.

The Keeneland Association donated $50,000 to transform the Keeneland Association Room into a new active meeting space. Along with freshening up the paint and carpet in the room, the new design incorporates modular furniture that groups can arrange in various configurations and a large flat-screen wall-mounted monitor with HDMI hookup for laptops on which users can project images.

Additionally, the renovation includes archival photos of Keeneland printed on metal plates, resulting in fade-resistant images mounted around the room. The images will give visitors a peek at the history of such an important Lexington landmark.
