Trexler Library Scuttlebutt

Bi-Weekly Update from the Library

Trexler Library 20th Anniversary
20 years ago, the college library’s services and collections moved several hundred yards from Haas Hall to a new edifice constructed on the south side of Chew St. This new space featured good light, beautiful cherry wood furnishings, and an exterior that attractively coexisted alongside both modern and traditional buildings across campus. The building has weathered well, and though some members of the staff have changed, the library remains committed to providing quality service, programming, and resources in support of the College’s mission as a liberal arts institution. Please join us as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Trexler Library Oct. 20-25 (see calendar of events below).
