Six hundred donors raised $608,167 towards books and other library materials for this facility. An additional $600,000 was invested to begin the Tippecanoe County Public Library Foundation held at the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette. The joint public/college building was turned over to Ivy Tech in 2016.
