Founded as one of the original Andrew Carnegie libraries,
Henry Buhl Library has always stood as a haven of learning for both the college
and community. With approximately 160,000 books and bound periodicals, 3,000
videos, and 10,000 periodical and newspaper subscriptions, patrons are given
the necessary tools to do exceptional research.
Originally housed in Carnegie Hall on the corner of Main and
Broad streets, the library was moved to upper campus in 1954, to the sandstone building we are familiar with today. Although
the library has changed a great deal in the past 50 years, the intent has
always been the same: to provide good quality collections and effective
reference service in a beautiful and well-kept building.
