STOCKBRIDGE — Berkshire Country Day School is celebrating the approach of the finishing line for its two-year, $3 million campaign to fund a new library, performing arts space and to enhance the endowment, specifically for higher faculty salaries.

Before a packed campus party last weekend, Head of School Paul Lindenmaier announced to 250 guests that $2,838,548 is in hand toward the "Fulfilling the Promise" campaign. Groundbreaking is expected next June for the Kim & James Taylor Music & Performance Room and the Kevin Hirt Library & Learning Commons, Lindenmaier said.

"The school had the myth at one time that it was just a place for the elite and affluent," Lindenmaier told the Eagle on Monday. "The members of the board and donors to this campaign represent a cross-section of everything we are."

The facilities, costing about $1.5 million, are designed by Flansburg Architects, the noted Boston firm, and will be built by Allegrone Construction, which submitted the most competitive bid for a restoration of the historic Furey Hall. Allegrone handled the school's Fitzpatrick Gym and Peterson Hall in the late 1990s.

"This Learning Commons is going to transform how we think about teaching, learning and space at school," he said. "There's going to be distance learning, we'll be engaged with the outside world in new and exciting ways."
