North Carolina State University is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Centennial Campus by building a library named for former Gov. Jim Hunt. The university plans to break ground during a ceremony Friday morning for the James B. Hunt Jr. Library.

The State is spending $115 toward the building, which will house collection of the university's school of textiles and engineering and is scheduled for completion in 2012.

The building also will be home to the Institute for Emerging Issues founded by Hunt, a four-term Democratic governor and N.C. State alumnus who left office in 2001.
