The History of Penrose Library

What started with $25, fourteen bound volumes and fifteen pamphlets, donated by Rev. Myron Eells in 1882, has grown into Penrose Memorial Library, a modern facility with more than 40,000 unique journal titles and 160 databases, and over 500,000 print volumes.

In honor of National Library Week 2014, this exhibit takes a look back at the growth of the library over the years.
