“Observe Our Library: The Construction of Madison Memorial Library 1937-1939,” as a precursor to the 75th anniversary of the library’s structure, showcases the construction of the first free-standing library on campus. Beginning with the expressed need for a new library structure by students in 1937, the exhibit traces the stages of funding, planning and the construction of Madison Memorial Library, which was completed in 1939. The exhibit features historic photographs, newspaper articles and ephemera, including an invitation to the formal dedication of the library held on Dec. 12, 1939, a colored postcard of Madison Memorial Library and printing plates of library spaces used on campus publications; free.
