CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

One of University of Virginia's libraries is getting an expensive facelift that will cost over $100 million.

Alderman Library, which is situated on McCormick Road, will soon undergo a $160 million large-scale renovation.

UVA library officials say Alderman was built in 1938 and is now at its maximum capacity.

The renovation will include a demolition to the old and new stacks section of the library, as well as adding new classrooms and seating options. The project is set to begin in 2020.
