RVC to move Stewart Square classes to downtown RPL

Posted:

Rock Valley College courses, being taken at the school's Stewart Square facilities, will soon move into the downtown branch of the Rockford Public Library.

The details aren't ironed out right now. Library board members simply voted on what they're referring to as a non-binding letter of intent.

Rock Valley College students enrolled downtown at Stewart Square are taking mainly remedial classes.  The space includes a computer lab, conference area and student lounge.

RVC moved into the downtown location in 2010.

Board Chairman Paul Logli says it makes sense for the library to house the classes and it makes sense for RVC to move.

He says it's a trend across the country for community colleges to have classes where the resources are, in many cases, public libraries.

If it all works out, RVC will lease space out of the downtown branch, Logli doesn't know how much but says the price will be market rate.

Board members voted unanimously with the intent to move forward with discussions and planning.

No word on when the classes would begin.
