Smathers Library

The University of Florida, Gainsville, Florida

Smathers Library (also known as Library East) is the oldest library on the University of Florida campus. It is located at the northeast corner of the Plaza of the Americas and is currently the home of the George A. Smathers Libraries'. In 1998, The Lathan Company completely restored the roof to this University landmark. This project earned The Lathan Company National Finalist honors for the prestigious Gold Circle Award for Workmanship presented by the National Roofing Contractor's Association. Nominations for this award are made by the building Owner and Architect.
