Biographical / Historical

"The Davis Family Library, designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates, is a spacious, 143,000 square foot building located on the northeast edge of campus. The College Library was housed in portions of Old Chapel and Painter Hall until the first building dedicated to library collections and services, Egbert Starr Library (now the Donald Everett Axinn '51 Center for Literary and Cultural Studies) was opened in 1900 to mark the College’s centennial. After just over a century in that location, a new era began when the library expanded into the Davis Family Library in June 28, 2004."
