RALEIGH — North Carolina State University is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Centennial Campus by starting work on a library named for former Gov. Jim Hunt.

N.C. State officials planned to break ground in a ceremony Friday morning for the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. UNC system President Erskine Bowles and Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton plan to attend with Hunt.

The state is spending $115 million toward the building, which will house collections 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.
